      Thanks Bev - I'm not overly experienced with making meat stews, so couldn't say if this was really old fashioned or not (someone else mentioned it not the type of beef stew they were used to), I'd say this is the best one I've made. The end result was tasty and your quantities are bang on*. Browning the meat is a little time consuming, but I think worth it. *After reading some of the reviews I added about a cup of water to the crock pot...the gravy was the perfect consistency. I actually made two batches, one to freeze. I couldn't fit it all in one so in the one batch I used russet potatoes and the other batch I used a more waxy red potato. I'd say the russets worked best since they break down a little in the gravy. The only thing that seemed to be missing was garlic...but maybe that's just me. Thanks Bev - I'm sure I'll make this for the meat eaters in my house again.

      This was good, but a lot more tomato tasting than I expected, and it was thick. It was a good stew, but didn't taste like beef stew to me.
