This stew turned out awesome!! I am looking forward to making it again. I made it exactly as stated, except I didn't have any red pepper flakes so I used 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper. Served it over bread and it tasted perfect...I wouldn't change a thing!! Thank you so much for this great, simple recipe!!

Cut this back to 4 serves which fitted my crock pot and us, though I bought a slice of chuck steak and 2 slices of gravy beef and ended up with just over a 1lb (1/2K) of meat and did not use red wine but subbed with extra beef stock, eitherwise followed through but would cut back on the thyme (came through a bit too strong) and for my crock pot this recipe would be 7 hours (did 6.5 hours) and in the last hour added a couple of handfuls of peas. Was enjoyed by the DM, DS and myself. Thank you Audrey M, made for Revised Bargain Basement Game.
