EASIEST CROCKPOT BEEF STEW EVER! from Allrecipes.com (I made this today and can't believe how good it was for being so easy. The only thing I did different was I dredged the beef in flour and browned it in oil a little, and I used cut up baked potatoes we had a couple days ago..and added one can of beef broth (and ditched the carrots). So good! done when I got home..
