This was so good and the meat turned out melt in your mouth tender. I added 2 cans of tomato rice soup since the meat was a little over 3 lbs. I used tenderized angus stew meat cut into chunks. I also added about a cupof mushrooms because I was making something else too and had a cup of mushrooms left over and did not want them to go to waste. After everything was done I added about a half cup of flour water to the crockpot to thicken the juices and it paractically came out like a thick and chunky soup. Since it is just the 2 of us we decided to also make this on Christmas instead of a huge dinner. Perfect wintertime recipe as well. Great recipe and a definite keeper. Thank you for posting it. :-)
