Slow Cooker Stew

A yummy stew has got to be one of my most favorite comfort foods. I love this recipe - it's easy, versatile and delicious!

-Modified from Taste of Home

1 lb. beef stew meat
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) beef broth
1 can (11-1/2 ounces) V8 juice
2 celery ribs, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
3 bay leaves
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. cold water
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen peas

In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 12 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until meat is tender. Discard bay leaves.
In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into stew. Add corn and peas. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until thickened.
