    uberivy's Note:

    This is an excellent recipe for crock-pot beef stew, as adapted from a combination of two other highly-rated stove-top beef stew recipes posted. I made it as an experiment, and my friends and family exclaimed over it for days afterwards!

      A very good stew! This was a little tangy for my taste, possibly due to the hoisin sauce. I used a Cabernet Sauvignon and might use a Burgundy next time. I liked all the ingredients and by my WW calculator, it came out much healthier than the nutritional information states. (I believe it was 6 points plus) It was easy to make in the crock pot and I have never smelled anything so heavenly in all my life!!! I want to make it again just to have my house smell that way! My family doesn't like stew so I am enjoying eating this all by myself!
