I started out trying this recipe for the crock pot just as it is written. Decided to take it on high for 5 hours instead of the 4 hours suggested... but, at the 4 hour mark is when I first removed the lid to stir and check the dish... as far as coloring, broth, and seasoning... I found this REALLY bland... The recipe had me put 2 cups of beef broth from which I originally did from a 32 oz box. After seeing how bland, I poured the rest of he 32 oz box of beef broth into a bowl, added one 6 oz can of tomato paste... then after whisking these two together... added a bit more pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to taste. Let that simmer 1 more hour in the crock pot on high... turned out TOTALLY AWESOME... the stew coloring was suddenly "right"... and the seasoning now... PERFECT!... Trust me on these changes! Will make ALL the difference!!
