Wonderful stew....great flavor!!!, Member waterbabymama

This was a great stew made in the slow cooker :) I love doing new things and flavors in the slow cooker and we loved it. We even did this recipe with pork stew meat instead of beef (b/c the cost is a bit lower right now) and it turned out great! I would make this stew again and even add more veggies (like celery, potatoe, mushrooms, etc) to add to the veggie content (b/c I prefer more veggies than meat...and my husband prefers more meat). Overall great stew and a wonderful new flavor to add to your weeks meals!!! Thanks :)
