You can simply pop all of the ingredients into your slow cooker and let it do its magic for the day.
If you have the time, spend a few extra minutes to do the following. Before adding ingredients to the slow cooker, caramelize the onion in 1 tbsp of coconut oil or butter. Next add beef and brown slightly. Add in the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add all these juicy bits to your slow cooker as well as the remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
I have an Instant Pot that has a sauté function as well as a slow cook function. Using the Instant Pot means that I can do everything I need in one place.
Be creative with your veggies. Next time, I plan to swap out the white potatoes and give sweet potatoes a whirl.
