Pretty good! would give it 4.5 stars if I could. I, too, was unable to start this the night before and honestly glad I didn't. Even on low I would think the veggies would be complete mush after all that time. I started mine on high at 10 am, turned it down to low after 4 hours and the meat was spoon tender by 7pm. With 1 hour to go I added 2 Tbs of corn starch to the stew and let it cook the last hour with the lid off and it thickened up PERFECTLY. I used vegetable broth instead of water and added about 2/3 cup of red wine (cab merlot blend) and 2 cloves of garlic to the mix. I was also a little heavy handed with the other veggies as I had stuff to use up. All in all this is a tasty recipe I will definitely make again although I think I may wait to put the veggies in at the half way point next time so they are not sooooooo soft.
