Really great flavor! I must also agree with the other reviewers: Not enough juice. I would add beef broth and a thickener next time. Also, I just cut up a roast I had on hand instead of stew ...

This is an excellent recipe for beef stew and takes little time for preparation. Once it's in the slow cooker, your work is done. My husband and I made a few changes to the recipe to allow for...

Mine ended up too cooked ... meat was dry, potatoes and carrots were mushy and there should have been more broth of some sort.
