How long will it take to cook beef stew in the crock pot on LOW heat?

July 12th, 2012

Some sites say 5-6 hours, others say 7-8 hours. I have 1.5 pounds.

If you put it on just before leaving for work it will be ready by the time you get home thats what I do .You can do the same with thick ham steaks and pieces of pinapple and make a gravy out of the juice its great.

    read the fine manual that came with the crockpot.

    we don’t know how hot "warm" is on yours.

    Mine lowers temp after 2 hours and automatically goes on warm. they are all different.

    6 – 8, try at 6, then every 30 mns.

    I have been cooking with crock pots for years and have always cooked stews in them and I usually leave the stew go for 10 hours on low depending on the cut of meat. The longer you leave the stew to cook the tender it gets. Hope this helps. If you want to cook it faster put it on high and cook it of 5 hours.

    I would let it cook on "low" for at least 8 hours. 10 hours would probably be better.

    The longer the better really, it won’t harm it just make it more tender! But I usually go for about 8 hours.
