It is easy to put together. It's good to eat. The only change I would have made is to add 1 more carrot, potato, and onion. All I had to add to the supper to make it complete was some baking powder biscuits and a salad. I will definitely be making this again. .

I replaced the peas with half a pound of mushrooms added to the slow cooker at the same time as the meat. I also mixed half a cup of pinot noir with the flour instead of water, and served it over buttered egg noodles. Big hit, great recipe.

Our family heritage recipe for the last 50 years! Great!The old recipe included bisquick drop dumplings mixed with marjoram and dropped on the cooking beef stew to plump up into dumplings!!! Oh! So! Good!

I have had the pleasure of making this stew every other week in the winter for my family for the past four years! They love it, it's so easy to make, and I am always complimented on it.
