Beef Stew -

Note: This is high carb for me, but great for Paleo winter bulking. Around 20g of carbs per Brute sized serving (sometimes known as a mixing bowl)

5-6 pounds cheap beef
2 pounds carrots
2 medium cooking onions
6 stalks celery (by stalks I'm talking the individual pieces from the whole thing)
1 large rutabaga
4 cups water
1 packet onion soup mix (I like the lipton best right now)
Butter
1-2 tsp salt
1 tbsp black pepper

Cut beef into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch chunks.
Melt butter in a large heavy skillet and brown the beef.

Add 4 cups water and onion soup mix to a LARGE crock pot, stir, then add the browned beef.
Set to high for 4 hours.

In the mean time, peel and chop your carrots celery and rutabaga into stew sized chunks.

Add these in around 3 hours before you plan on eating.

Note on beef. Sure, you can get official stew beef, but if its going to hang out in the crock pot for 7-10 hours, the toughest chunks are still going to be super tender.

As for crockpot size, this filled my 12 quart cooker, so you may have to dial it back a bit to fit yours.
