Great stew.

"I loved it! I added Lawry's Season salt (liberally) and having read the comments about salt and pepper I liberally applied them, too.

The other thing I did was really work the flower and spices into the meat before adding the vegetables. I used russet potatoes (big ones) and I ended up adding an extra cup-and-a-half of beef base because my vegetables were so big.

I cooked on high for 4.5 hours and low for 30 minutes.

Yummy! I'm eating it right now.

Oh yah and I added the Kitchen Bouquet, too."

Crockpot Brunswick Stew

A variation on this recipe

"Brunswick stew is a traditional dish from the southeastern United States. The origin of the dish is uncertain, and there are two competing claims as to the place in the South where it originated, in addition to some claim to a German origin. In some parts of the South (particularly North Carolina and Georgia), it is also known as "hash"." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Slow Cooker Italian Beef Stew

A variation on this recipe

"Give savory beef stew a Tuscan twist with Italian seasoning, cannellini beans and crushed tomatoes." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Crockpot Cowboy Stew

A variation on this recipe

"This stew is hearty and has a nice kick to it; real comfort food. Serve with crusty bread for mopping up all the good stew juices. Bagged salad greens make a tasty side." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Feijoada - Brazilian Savory Meat & Bean Stew

Personally, I prefer making it this way

"The Brazilian feijoada is traditionally prepared over low fire in a thick clay pot. The final dish has the beans and meat pieces barely covered by a dark purplish-brown broth. The taste is strong, moderately salty but not spicy, dominated by the flavors of black bean and meat stew." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

This was the worst stew I've ever made. None of my boys would eat it.

This recipe for beef stew was very good. I did add corn starch instead of flour....used 3Tblspoons and about 1 1/2 cups more of beef broth....only because I add a few more vegtables (corn and peas). This was a 4 star recipe according to my family's taste buds!!!!

Absolutely scrumptious! I omitted the kitchen bouquet, added a half cup of extra beef broth with a little corn starch and it turned out great! I plan to make this my 'go-to Beef Stew'... Thanks to the one who posted it!
