Healthy Slow Cooker Beef and Vegetable Stew Recipe

I love the slow cooker, (link below if you don’t have one) it is so easy to use and you can put everything in and leave it for the day and then when you come home you have a finished meal that you can just dish up.  This healthy slow cooker beef and vegetable stew recipe is low fat and is a staple for my family.  We eat it at least once a fortnight, especially in the colder months, which is most months in the UK!

Add 200ml boiling water to the pan and then add this to the slow cooker to make sure you get all the meat juices in the stew.
