Something tasty for the slow cooker.

Top Review by RogerOH

We used Venison instead of stew beef. I also used fresh parsely. The stew meat came out very tender, but we felt the whole stew lacked flavor. I doubled from the butter on down. As written, it did not seam like enough sauce. With doubling we still didn't have any gravy.
