I love how I can toss all of the ingredients into the slow cooker, walk away and go live life.

Whether you cook this classic stew recipe on high for 4-6 hours or low on 8-10 hours. One thing to make sure is that the meat is so tender that it falls apart. I usually wing the amount of Worchestershire sauce, but I’m guessing it’s about 2 tbsps. When it doubt, go small and adjust and taste towards the end.

  3. This stew looks delicious the only I’d change is I’d add more vegetables like peas or corn etc

  4. This inspired me to make for dinner today. I am having one of those days I don’t feel like cooking but I have a lot of baking to do. This is perfect because by the end of the day I will not feel like being in the kitchen anymore.
