Recipe Review: Barb's beef stew

Barb's Beef Stew


* 2 pounds stew beef * I used fresh deer meat
* 1/2 cup flour * dreged the meat
* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt * omitted
* 1 teaspoon pepper
* 4 cups beef broth * water and broilin cubes
* 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
* 1 Tbs crushed garlic
* 2 fresh bay leaves *dry
* 1 teaspoon paprika
* 4 chopped carrots
* 4 large diced potatoes
* 2 chopped onions
* 1 stalk chopped celery
* 1 can mushroom pieces and stems * out
* 1 cup frozen peas


Place meat in Crockpot, then pour flour, salt, and pepper over the meat and mix. Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT mushrooms and peas. Mix well. Cook on Low 10-12 hours or High 4-6 hours. Add mushrooms and peas about a half hour before eating.

Ok so I did make some changes to the regular recipe. Either way, I won't be making it again. It was good, we did like it but as a stew, that it wasn't. It was just a soup.. not thick at all. So I tossed the recipe. I could make this as a method without the recipe. We'll enjoy the leftovers, they taste better the next day.
