    This stew is just like one my mom used to make when my sister and I were little girls and she was the busy mom on the run!

      Extremely good! I have always used the McCormick's stew package for the slow cooker. Since I have found out that I am allergic to wheat, I can't use it. Your recipe was delicious! I will be making it again. Only thing that I changed was to use gluten free flour to brown the meat. Thanks!

      Brenda, this stew was great. It had so much flavor and easy to put together. I cooked it on the stove top for about 2 hours and the beef was so tender. I added the salt and pepper to the flour in step one and that was the only time we used it. You just did not need to add any salt and pepper in the end. This will go on our family favorites! Thanks again for sharing.
