Slow Cooker Italian Beef Stew

Recipe by  

"Best beef stew I've ever made! I apologize for the vague instructions, the ingredient amounts are approximate as well as I did this over the weekend but did not note amounts. It turned out so good I wanted to save what I did so I could make again! Chicken broth can be used instead of beef broth if desired."

I liked it. but, my husband still doesn't like beef stew. So, I will make it for me only.

Loved it (and so did my housemates)! I added a little Worcester sauce and doubled the liquids only because I like my stews a little 'saucier'. Will be making this again for sure!

Supremely undercooked using the recipe as directed. Probably tasty, otherwise. Will try again but adjust cooking temp/times.

This is a good stew. I added a few extra spices, let it cook on low for 8 hours. We enjoyed the hardiness of the meal. Great on a cold winter day!
