Slow Cooker Beef Stew!

Start with about 1 and 1/4 lbs. cubed beef
In a large frying pan… sear your beef golden brown
in 4 tbsp. of canola oil and about 1/8 lb. diced bacon.

Dredge the beef first in a seasoned flour consisting of:
1 cup flour, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. garlic powder
and 1 tsp. onion powder. After it is really golden brown.

Add: 1/2 cup red wine, 1/2 of a onion diced, 1 tbsp.
minced garlic, 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, and 1 cup
chicken broth.

Pour everything in your crock pot from the frying pan
and then add: 1 cup of sliced mushrooms, 1 cup baby carrots,
1/2 cup diced celery, and 3 red potatoes cut into 1 and 1/2 inch chunks. Add 1 small 8 oz. can of tomato sauce and enough chicken broth to come up to the top of the veggies.

Cook for 1 hour on high and then 4 hours on low.

Then add:
1/4 tsp. of parsley, / 1/4 tsp. of sage.
1/4 tsp. of rosemary, 1/4 tsp. off thyme,
Then at this point also add 1/2 tsp. salt
and 1/2 tsp. of black pepper to the whole pot!

Cook for 10 more minutes then serve!
If you like your stew extra thick add 1 package
of beef gravy mix! Wow!
