  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds stew beef
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup onion, sliced, about 1 large onion
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 oz.) mushrooms, drained
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water


If beef is in large pieces, cut into cubes, about 3/4- to 1-inch. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute the beef and onion in the hot oil until beef is browned. Add the garlic and chopped green pepper and saute for 1 minute longer; transfer to the slow cooker insert. Add salt, pepper, beef stock, tomatoes, mushrooms and barbecue sauce. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 8 to 10 hours. Mix cornstarch with the cold water and stir into stew about 20 minutes before done. Serve with hot cooked noodles or rice.

Quite Good, Member 94okie

We really enjoyed this meal. It was yummy and filling and easy. The only thing that didn't work for me was the title. It's not very ""stew like"" or ""bar-b-q like"". It's more of a beef and gravy. Delicious over mashed potatoes.
