SUPERB beef stew! I took the great base recipe, and tweaked it with a compilation of reviewer recommendations. The end result is a winner, to be sure. Here is what I did (and I won't change a thing the next time I make it): 1. Increase flour to 1/3 cup and substitute seasoned salt for regular salt. Put flour mixture into gallon-sized, zippered bag. Shake beef in bag to coat. Sauté coated beef in 1-2 tablespoons olive oil until browned. Add chopped onion to beef to sauté and soften. Transfer to slow cooker. 2. Mix beef broth (I used Swanson's Certified Organic in aseptic carton) with 1 TABLEspoon Worcestershire and ½ cup red wine. Pour into hot skillet to deglaze, then pour over beef and onions in cooker. 3. Add remaining ingredients with these additions: increase garlic to 2 cloves minced, 2 bay leaves; add 1 packet McCormick's Beef Stew Seasoning. Your home will smell wonderful all day, and your meal will be a savory feast! I served the stew in bowls, accompanied by slices of fresh, crusty bread.

I have been making this stew for almost 3 years and wanted to review it again. Although I'm sure Corinne's suggestions are good, what I like most about this recipe is the simplicity of preparation...no browning the beef. I've made this over a couple dozen times at least - doubled - and have never had leftovers. It is a terrific recipe as written.

I made this stew for the first time using Corinne's suggestion. The stew turned out great! The next week, I made the stew following the exact recipe (minus the celery, since I didn't have any); and I must say that the stew turned out EVEN BETTER when following the exact recipe. (Also, I didn't have as many dishes to wash.) This stew is SO DELICIOUS. Next time I make this you can bet I will follow the recipe EXACTLY AS WRITTEN.
