Step 1

Place the onions, carrots, celery, red potatoes, turnips, parsnips, tomato paste, beef broth, dried thyme, dried parsley, oregano, and dried bay leaves into a large slow cooker.

Step 2

Add the stew meat to a large bowl, and season liberally with salt and pepper. Toss the meat until it is fully coated, and set aside.

Step 3

Over medium heat, heat the olive oil in a skillet.

Step 4

Add the garlic, and sauté for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Step 5

Add the meat, and let the beef cook without stirring for a few minutes to brown the meat on one side.

Step 6

Stir, and repeat until all sides of the beef pieces are browned.

Step 7

Add the browned beef to the slow cooker, and stir to combine with the vegetables.

Step 8

Place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on high for 5 hours. After 5 hours, taste the stew, and adjust the salt if needed. Garnish with fresh parsley.
