I made this on 7/30/12 for mine and my SO's dinner. There were a few changes made to the recipe,I used the full amount of the carrots,potatoes,and onion.I only had a little over a pound of stew meat,which was tossed with the flour,salt& pepper. For a bit more color, the flour coated meat was browned in a bit of hamburger "drippings". I didn't have any celery, so a couple of shakes of dried celery flakes were used.No beef broth was on hand, so 1 cup of water and a beef bouillon cube was used. For the paprika, a Smoked Spanish Paprika was used. After adding the remaining ingredients, it only took about 6 hours for the stew to be done. Thanks for a recipe that will be made again.

This was easy and delicious! I didn't use browning sauce (didn't have any) and used vegetable broth (all I had). I also used sweet potatoes, as suggested below, and they were fantastic! The stew was so tasty and really tender. Thanks for the recipe!
I subbed sweet potatoes for the potatoes, and used a whisker of chili powder as I was out of paprika. It took 7 hours on low, meat tender. Served with mashed potatoes, the gravy was delicious. I browned the floured meat beforehand, but next time might try it as written. I also only used half a teaspoon of salt but it was good. An easy tasty meal.
Amazing stew, so heavenly and delicious!!! Cooked on low for about 7 hours, meat was so tender and the sauce was heaven!
I only made a few subltle changes to this recipe and it turned out great. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
Grandma, I am not a slow cooker fan as I love to play around in the kitchen as much as possible. I was interested in a stew recipe to try out my new slow cooker that was a gift (over a year ago). I saw your recipe and decided to go for it. Put the ingredients in and away I went ... when returning home my son said "wow it sure smells great in here". We haven't eaten it yet but if our noses do the talking ... it is going to be great! I did add 1 can of tomato paste to the broth, 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, 4 garlic cloves and a sprinkling of dried parsley, oregano and thyme, and as stated by other reviewers I dusted (with a little flour) and browned my meat cubes off in small batches before adding to the cooker. Thanks for the recipe.. I will try to get a picture of this (if only these pictures were scratch and sniff).
I browned the meat as well. This is a super easy and delicious meal.
The flavours really come together on this one--I found it a bit salty, so next time I'll leave out the added salt. Very tasty!!
This stew was very easy to make and turned out very tasty. It was perfect on a cold Autumn day. I followed the recipe ingredients exactly, the only thing I did differently was to brown the meat first. Thanks for the great recipe.
