Sheri's Slow Cooker Beef Stew

READY IN: 4hrs 45mins
Recipe by Narshmellow

I love beef stew. I am not fond of canned stew and have read many recipes and finally just took a little from one and a little from another and just added the things I like. This one my family loved so it's a keeper!

Wonderful! What more can I say. I followed the recipe exactly. I did double it - it almost didn't fit in my huge crock pot! I doubled it with the intention of freezing half. No such luck. My family saw to it that there was none left for freezing!
