Beef Stew with Onion and Sweet Potato

1 pound organic beef stew meat (1 inch chunks)
14.5 ounces organic beef broth
2 sweet potatoes peeled, cut into 2 inch chunks (I often add a baker potato too if I have one on hand)
1 large onion, chopped (1 inch chunks)
2 slices thick-cut bacon, diced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Combine all ingredients except cornstarch. Cover and cook 7 hours on low or 5 hours on high in a crockpot (or 1-2 hours simmering on stovetop). With slotted spoon transfer beef and vegetables to separate bowl. Combine cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water. Mix and add to juices. Cover and cook 15 minutes, spoon sauce over beef and vegetables. (I often cook this stew in 28 ounces of organic beef broth because I like it more "soupy") Enjoy!
