I keep all of the above ingredients on hand to make another batch of Stephanie's slow cooker stew. Great for those cold winter days that are or will be here soon!

This is the ONLY beef stew my daughter will eat. I don't put in the celery and I use my own homemade tomato juice for more flavor. Turns out tender every time. I do add a bit more cornstarch because I like a thicker stew. All in all, this is so worth making.

This came together easy, I used low-sodium juice to reduce the sodium levels a bit. Very good!

I thought this recipe was ok. but I wouldn't be making it again. It definitely needs more thickening than the recipe calls for and the flavors were just bland.

Substituted beer for part of beef broth.

Family loved! Had to use way more then two potatoes for my family and didn't include the peas due to picky eaters. Will use again!

Was quite nice. Used 1kg of meat and also added some minced garlic. Thought it may need some red wine to lift the flavours a bit. My family enjoyed this and scored it a 9/10. Thanks for a lovely recipe.
