The flavor of this was very good, although I feel it could almost be considered more of a soup than a stew. I did cut the potatoes up into very small, bite-sized cubes, but had difficutlty getting them to cook through. I cooked on low temp. for about 8 hours and finally turned the temp. to high for the last half hour to thoroughly cook the potatoes. The next time I prepare this dish, I will cut the amount of tomatoes in half, to our own taste. Thank you for posting, Audrey!

First of all, you need to use a 6 quart slow-cooker for this recipe. I used my 4 quart cooker thinking it would be big enough, but it wouldn't hold all the liquid. The flavor of the broth was good. For my taste, I will only use 1 can of tomatoes next time. The consistency is more like a soup, so may add something to thicken it, like cornstarch. Hearty and filling--made a nice lunch. Thanks.
