Recipe by Nif
There's nothing like a nice bowl of stew on a cold night. This is an easy dish to toss in the crock pot and come home later to the great smell of this comfort dish. Try this with Nif's Easy Baking Powder Dumplings (Crock Pot or Stove Top). This will need to cook for 6 to 8 hours. Enjoy!

I baked it 5 1/2 hours. Then added the cornstarch with water. And after the additionnal 30 minutes, I removed the beef cause it was tender but the potatoes were not tender. Next time I'll cut the potatoes smaller. Wonderful taste. The sauce is great. And the leftovers are even better. Thanks Nif :) Made for PRMR tag game
