Crock Pot Beef Stew

I made this recipe up on the fly this past weekend. I just happened to have some of the main ingredients ready in the freezer... and the rest on hand so it was a quick meal to throw in the crock pot early on... allowing me to have fun the rest of the day! Lets hear it for easy weekend meals! This stew is not quite as tasty and fancy as John's favorite, Irish Beef Stew. But it gets the job done and it's quite nice on a cold day.

Crock Pot Beef Stew

4 cups beef stock (homemade bone broth)
1 lb beef stew cubes
7 carrots peeled and sliced in 1/4" rounds
6 russet potatoes, peeled and sliced in 1/4"x1/2" cubes
Tbsp molasses
Tbsp Thyme
dash of red wine vinegar
black pepper

Sear the beef in a skillet for about 2 minutes. Add to the crock pot. Save the juices and add a few tbsp olive oil... saute the carrots and potatoes for 5-10 minutes to burn off the starches and get them cooking. Then just throw everything in the crock pot and set it on high for 5-6 hours.
