Slow Cooker Beef Noodle Stew

A nice crockpot beef stew when you're not in the mood for the classic beef stew with potatoes. I'm sure you could slow-ccok this on the stovetop, I just never have. I use my 6-qt. crockpot for this.

My beef broth was a generic brand so for quite awhile the stew lacked much flavor. I tweeked it with some beef base and 1 cup of wine and after simmering in the crock pot for most of the day the flavor intensified. It was very good and I will definitely make again.

Tried this after reading lauralie's wonderful review. Parsley this was wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly as written but I did brown the beef stew on the stove before putting it in the crock pot. Our grandbaby loved the noodles :) Thank you for a great comfort food meal.

This recipe is simply excellent. I doubled the ingredients and added 1 cup of pinot noir to my batch. Red wine just adds a special extra something to the flavor of stew. I also stirred in two packets of Goya sazon and did not use salt or pepper. I had to use extra cornstarch to get the broth to thicken adequately but I think that was because I did not compensate for the wine. I used "All Natural Better Than Bouillon" reduced sodium beef base. So freaking satisfying. I'm going to take the time to write this one down on a recipe card so I never lose track of it.
