This was a great recipe. My kids loved it. We used a chuck roast instead of the suggested beef.

The basic recipe is darned good. I now enhance it with more stock, double tomato paste, some butter, and other stew-herbs. But this all works. It's a regular.

It was tasty, but a little thicker than I am used to.

Great recipe! I coated the meat with the flour and browned it in a skillet before putting in slow cooker and it turned out GREAT!
