  1. The night before, cut up potatoes and carrots and slice onions. Put all the vegetables in a plastic container filled with water overnight.
  2. Also the night before, marinate the stew meat with Worcestershire sauce and herb seasoning in a plastic storage bag. Place in the refrigerator.
  3. In the morning, put the raw beef in the bottom of your slow cooker. Drain the vegetables, and pour in on top of the beef. Pour in the stewed tomatoes and tomato juice. If you like your stew a little spicy, add a chopped jalapeno pepper or two.
  4. Turn the slow cooker on high for 1 hour. Then, set your slow cooker to low for 6-8 hours. The beef will cook completely, and will be very tender.

Overall, this beef stew was very delicious. The first time I made it the potatoes weren't quite soft enough, but I think it was because it smelled so good and I got impatient and began eating ;...

This stew will warm you right up. The beef was tender made a hearty meal, but it tasted a little bland. In the future I will add more salt and doctor it up with some spices.

I made this recipe because it seemed so quick and easy. It was just that, and it was too die for. I cooked it for 6 people coming to my house for dinner and they raved about it and all want the ...

This is a good foundation for stew however needs a LOT of boosting and personalization. I can't imagine anyone eating it 'as is' in the recipe. First, you need some herbs and nix the jalepeno. ...

Broth was thin, and a little too tomato-y. The meat turned out ok, but potatoes were still not cooked all the way after 9 hours and I did soak them...

This recipe starts out so simple yet winds up tasting sooooo great! Nice going!

Good, easy recipe to make. I made it without marinating and the flavor was still very good. The broth was a bit thin. Overall, good one-dish meal.
