This is altered from a very popular recipe on allrecipes.com. It came out really well--very, very flavorful. I added lots of herbs and spices, and wine, and way more Worcestershire sauce than originally called for. Feel free to add more broth, if you like a thinner stew, or throw in some celery or onions or whatever floats your boat. Whatever you do, you'll end up with a rich, tasty stew, with very little effort.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place beef stew meat into a slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together flour and paprika.
  3. Add pepper and seasoned or plain salt to taste.
  4. Sprinkle over beef stew meat, stirring to coat.
  5. Stir in beef broth, wine, Worcestershire sauce, dehydrated onions, carrots, celery salt, potatoes, garlic, garlic salt and bay leaf.
  6. Cover, and cook on high 4-5 hours, or 8 on low, stirring occasionally.
  7. Yes, you need to stir! I didn't even though the original recipe called for it, and my first batch of stew burned a tiny bit. Grrr. The next batch was great, though, with the help of a little stirring. :).
