This was pretty tasty and easy to make. I felt like there was too much potato, so next time I'll either do two potatoes or three smaller ones. I used russet potatoes. I would also use more celery. I cooked it on high for 5 hours. Next time I might do 6 hours because the veggies could have been a little more tender. Over all I was pleased with this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. arrange vegetables in a slow cooker -- top with beef chunks.set aside.
  2. mix flour, salt, pepper and sprinkle over meat.
  3. stir well -- add remaining ingredients.
  4. cover, heat on low setting for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours --
  5. remove and discard bay leaf.
  6. You know I find it easy to convert any favorite stre recipe from stove top to slow cooker -- if it usually simmmers 35-45 minutes.that equals 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high -- Recipes that cook 1-3 hours will be done in 8-12 hours on low or 4-6 on least that is what I use as a guideline.
