Before writing my review, I want to say " I'm please to be the first one to rate this recipe. :). A few changes were made to the recipe,instead of combining the flour and seasonings in a bowl they were sprinkled over the meat and mixed well. I didn't have canned beef broth so, I used 2 bouillon cubes that were dissolved in 1 1/2 cups of boiling water.I didn't have fresh garlic,so jarred was used.We don't really care for celery,so it was left out.To prevent the potatoes from turning mushy, they were added about 2 hours into the cooking time. I used 8 ounces of frozen baby carrots,which were added about 1 hour before the end of the cooking time. My crockpot runs hot, so the stew was done in about 6 hours on low.Now, I don't know if my Mom ever used Worcestershire sauce but this recipe sure tastes just like hers.:) The only thing that was missing that she used was cabbage.So, when I make this again I'm adding a bit of cabbage. Thanks for posting a recipe that brought back great memories of my Mom's cooking. " Keep Smiling :) "
