How to Make Crock Pot Beef Stew : Thicken Sauce for Crock Pot Beef Stew
Hi this is Dave for Expert Village today were
going to make some crock pot beef stew. Now our crock pot has been going overnight and
all the veggies and the meat is thoroughly cooked through so were going to do is take
off the lid you’ll see it’s all falling apart. What were going to do is take some of the
juice out of here cause were going to thicken this up and make it more like a beef stew
so if you get a carrot or two in there that’s okay go ahead and put it into your pan. Take
some of that great flavor okay so what we’re going to do now is make what they call now
is a slurry you don’t want to put flour directly in the heated liquid otherwise it will make
a lot of lumps into it. You’ll probably had lumpy gravy before so what were going to do
is add a little cold water here add about a tablespoon of flour to the water and we’re
going to whisk this together. So go ahead and whisk that right in as I said this is
called a slurry and as you see we have our hot liquid here which is all of the stew drippings.
We’ll pour it slowly in and your going to see and go ahead and whisk this right in. As this gets heated up and starts to boil
you’ll see its going to thicken were going to reintroduce this into our beef stew.
