    Family LOVED this recipe! Only changes…I did flour and brown meat with onions before adding to crock pot. Also, used 2 lbs of meat…seemed a little too thick. Since I didn’t have celery, added a can of Cream of Celery. Thanks so much for a new favorite for my family!!

    I had a different beef stew recipe that my hubby liked but I thought was really bland, so I went searching for a new one. Tried this today and I really liked it! I think next time I will brown the beef first, to lock the juice inside, and we didn’t put in any mushrooms (ick), but otherwise it was really tasty! Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow :)

    This turned out excellent. Passed the hubby test with flying colors. I will certainly add this as a keeper.

    That’s how we like it Melissa…low and slow! But sometimes time just not enough time in a day to get it done :/

    I think this would’ve been best cooked on low for 8hrs (I tried the sped-up version) – lacked a little in flavor. Next time I think I’d sear the beef coated in seasoned flour prior to adding to crockpot – and prob should’ve added 1/4-1/2 bullion cube more (I used 1.41lbs beef).

    You could definitely double up on everything as long as your crock has enough room! That’s A LOT of food! If you overfill it, your potatoes and carrots may not get fully cooked. I would be sure to put those on the bottom of your stew. Enjoy!

  10. Stacey

    I’m going to try this recipe and set it in the morning. Quick question- I have 2.5lbs of the beef stew meat, should I double the measurements (except for the potato)? Thx!

  11. Cassy

    Doesnt seem like much liquid..,.Letting this one cook while I am at work for roughly 7 hrs, hope it goes well!

    Hmmm…you can use the tomato sauce and it should be okay. And, yes, granules are the same as cubes. cRock on!

  13. monica

    I don’t have a can of tomato soup but I have a can of tomato sauce. Will that work? Or would I need to only put half in? Also, I have beef bouillon granules is that the same as cubes?

    Just a regular size, Centry. I think it’s about 10oz, but I’m not looking at one right now. It’s with all the other soups on the soup aisle.

  15. Centry

    I need to know what can size of tomato soup?

    That’s a great question, MOF! I don’t see why not! Let us know how it turns out!!!

    Can beef bones be substituted for boullion cubes? If not, is there a crock pot recipe to use beef bones in?

  20. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    No Melissa…they will dissolve with all the other liquid when they’re crockin’. Just toss the bouillon cubes in the pot! :)

  21. Melissa W.

    Did you dissolve beef bouillon cubes in hot water first?

  22. Crockin Girls

    You can cook on high for 3-4 hours. I would check after 3 and extend if needed.

  23. Nikki K.

    How long would I cook this if I did it on high to shorten the time?
