    Psalm AKA Typo Qween's Note:

    This is another comfort food favorite that my Mother makes that slow cooks for hours. This recipe can be doubled or tripled. Add as many vegetables as you choose. You can also add peas. At our house we serve the stew with rice.

      This is very easy and quick to put together for those really busy days. I used red wine instead of the water and added seasoned salt and garlic powder. Made for PAC Spring 2011

      It doesen't get any easier than this! I browned the meat on the stove before adding it to the crockpot, and layered the remaining ingredients in the order given. I used about 4 handfuls of baby carrots, and 4 red potatoes, leaving the skins on. I cooked it on "High" for 3 hours and then turned it down to "Low" for another 3 hours. My family loved the stew, and I loved the fact that it was so quick and easy to put together. Thank you for sharing! *Made for 2010 Spring PAC*

      Delicious stew! I made very few changes to this. I used beef broth in place of the water and added a few grindings of pepper. It was also only cooked for 4 hours. The meat was fall apart tender at that point. This stew would be good with other winter veggies i.e. turnip, parsnips. The aroma while cooking was wonderful. We found it to be quite flavourful despite not adding a lot of seasonings. Made for Fall '09 PAC
