When I was young, my favorite food to order in a restaurant was beef stew. My mother and I decided to create our own and experimented with different ingredients until we came up with this recipe. Everyone liked this slow cooker version so much that now it's a tradition every time the whole family is together. —Chelsey Larsen, Sparks, Nevada

"Lovely flavour. Didn't add sun-dried tomatoes, as don't like them. Whole family enjoyed this. Thanks for a great recipe. Would make this again."

"This is an excellent and simple recipe. My family and I loved it. Reminescet of a Swiss Steak recipe I used to make in my pressure cooker back in the '60s."
