This is a great Crock-Pot recipe for beef stew.

Top Review by Cristina Stanfill

Be aware that this is the EXACT recipe that is printed in the booklet that comes with a new crockpot. It's easy enough, but they call for too much flour, it's a little pasty-tasting to me. Luckily, I made a test batch before I cooked for guests or I would have been embarrassed. Cut the flour amount down to about 1/2 and add more pepper. I've found that browning the beef first seals it and makes it taste better.
