INGREDIENTS
2 lbs. stew beef
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. paprika
4 lg. carrots
3 lg. potatoes
1 c. condensed beef broth
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/3 c. soy sauce
1 lg. onion
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)

DIRECTIONS
Layer potatoes, then carrots. Top with meat; sprinkle meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour. Spread with chopped onions. Combine beef broth & tomato sauce & pour overall. Cover & cook on low 7 - 8 hrs. or high 4 - 5 hrs. NOTES: Instead of sprinkling the meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour as the recipes says, I mix those all together in a small bowl. This prevents the flour from becoming clumpy. Instead of chopped onions, I use 3 or 4 small yellow onions whole (I'm not an onion fan but still like the taste they give the stew. ) I add about 1/4 cup barbecue sauce to the top, before putting the cover on. I use whatever variety of sauce that I have on hand. I don't usually buy the "regular" flavor of any brand, but instead have hickory, brown sugar or garlic and onion flavors. The BBQ sauce adds an extra "kick" to the meat and gravy. For the beef broth, since I don't usually keep that on hand, I dissolve 1 beef bouillon cube into 1 cup boiling water.

This is a great recipe and I've made it several times over the last couple years. All of the ingredients I put in were low or no sodium except for the soy sauce witch I put significantly less of than the recipe called for. I also added 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and some red wine sprinkled on top. For the potatoes and carrots I use red or white baby potatoes cut in half and a bag of baby carrots. Turns out amazing every time.

This was great! My very first Slow cooker recipe and it was fantastic! I used a little less salt and BBQ sauce than the recipe asked for. I added Celery, peas, and a Jalapeno for good measure in as well. delicious. SUPER Hearty and enough of it to keep this lonely bachelor warm and fed for days!

Freakishly salty and i put in less than it called for. Next time i wont put in any. It was really good though if you could get past the salt.

This is a great recipe that is simple to add a few different ingredients to suit the region of where you live. I added baby corn ears, sliced mushrooms, diced chilies, and just a touch of brown sugar to take the bite out of the chilies. Cooled on llow for 8 hours while I was at work, and it came out perfectly, although I did make a bit too much, but it will be good for lunch.

I'm not sure what a can of tomato sauce is (I'm Australian) - is it an Italian pasta sauce, a condiment like tomato ketchup, or a concentrate i.e tomato puree? Recipe sounds great but want to be sure on this, thanks!

Soooo yummy!! Followed your suggestion of using whole onions instead of the chopped onions & it was great! We also added some peas & corn towards the end. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Great recipe! Used this for my first time using my crockpot. Added an extra can of diced tomatoes, used less soy sauce and added some al dente rotini pasta at the end

This was delicious! My first try using a slow cooker. I work with chefs and they gave me some tips like searing the cubed meat in flour to lock in the juices. I used a little Dash while searing the meat. I had some difficulty getting my proportions right because I made a bigger batch. I put in a little too much soy sauce. But it still turned out really good. I made so much I'll have lunch for a week.

This was delicious! I prepared everything last night and put them all in the slow cooker this morning and the taste was amazing. I also mixed the flour with the seasoning beforehand. Amazing recipe.

This recipe is great. I did not use the salt just in case. You can always add it later.

Sounds great! First time slow-cooker user and this is the best recipe that I found and modified. Cooking now- will update in 8hrs.

The taste is great! I would use a little less soy sauce because I felt the recipe was a bit salty. Maybe cut it with water.

Excellent stew. This was my first slow cooker attempt, and it came out great. In fact, next time (and there will be a next time) I'll be trying some of the variations others have suggested. Yum! Highly recommended!

Not a fan of the flavor

Delicious!! Honestly, I haven't tried it with the bbq sauce, but I bet it gives it a nice extra kick.

Just threw everything into the pot and now we wait. It was a tight fit for my 3 quart cooker but we'll see how that works out. Everything smells delicious for my first stew attempt (also the first time I used a slow cooker)!

I originally posted "very tasty" but after making this recipe a dozen or more times, I can definitely say this is a fantastic stew. I have varied it in many subtle ways, adding different spices, and I often add tinned tomatos and tomato puree. Fantastic

Mmmmmmm!!! I made this today and will def def make lots and lots more. Was gorg! Might not add the ketchup though, didnt need it with the bbq sauce, which I used Jack Daniels smokey bbq. Also I added pearl barley. Cooked on high for 5 hours, was my first ever time in slo cooker, perfect dish! Thankyou :-)

This was my very first slow cooker experience and it was phenomenal. I pretty much followed the recipe to a "T", to include mixing the flour and spices all together in a bowl to keep from clumping. Worked out great!

Very easy to make and so delicious. This was my first stew and it was sooo good. the beef was unbelievably moist, although I did do 2 cups of beef broth. Thanks for sharing with us Ira.

I have just put this recipe in the pot, my first slow cooker attempt, so fingers crossed. (I added red wine for a bit of body, but I'm sure it would have been fine without.)

This was my first time cooking with a slow cooker, and this recipe turned out phenomenal! From my very limited experience, I also recommend pre-mixing the flour and ingredients - it did prevent clumping. I've made this recipe two times now, with the only change being a couple stalks of celery which gave it some more texture. Thanks for the great recipe!

This is an outstandingly lovely dish. I added tomato puree and oxo cubes to give it a stronger beefy taste. I'm having it again tonight. Thanks for the recipe Ira.
