I don't have a recipe but this is what I do.

Brown stewing beef in a pan with whatever spices you like and then toss it in the crock pot with cut up carrots, potatoes and some finely chopped onion and garlic. Pour in 2 cartons of beef broth. Cook on low for about 7 hours and then throw in some frozen peas. Let cook for another 1/2 hour or so and then thicken with flour/water mixture until desired consistency (I actually just use EasyBlend flour instead of the flour and water). I usually bake up some easy dinner rolls to go with it.

Yeah I don't follow a recipe either except to get ideas. You can add even a package of frozen veges like the carrots and beans or a different mix as long as you add them later in the cooking after maybe 3-4 hrs.

Instead of rolls we put Bisquick into copious amounts of gravy and cook dumplings. I know what we are having for supper tonight.

Since I don't like all the vegetables cooking with the meat (everything ends up tasting the same), I cook my meat in the slow cooker alone and add my cooked (not cooked to mush) vegetables right at the end.

I find the BESTEST meat for stew is a good cut of pot roast. I brown my pot roast on all sides, (leaving the mesh on) in a pan with margarine, then I put it into the slow cooker with water and a couple of beef Knorr cubes or a carton of beef broth. Let it cook on low for 6-8 hours, take it out and make the gravey with the liquid, peel the mesh off, cut the roast into bite size pieces, mix everything in together and serve.

I tried this recipe...it wasn't bad, but I think I'll drop the steak sauce next time
