- First prep and set aside carrots and potatoes
- Place diced onion with diced celery with small amount of butter and 2 tbs water into crock pot on high put lid on. if using garlic put it in here, diced well, or as powder or minced is very good, but only 1 table spoon or so.
- While onions-celery are caramelizing, take beef stew meat and thoroughly coat with paprika corn starch salt and pepper to desired taste,..first do the salt and pepper then sprinkle paprika then coat with corn starch.
- When the onions are done cooking and have soaked up all the water. Place meat into crock pot and add remaining chopped veggies on top, place water over top until it is covered and add tomato paste after it cooks for about 4 hrs on high.. cook stew until meat is tender when tested.
