An oval 3- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker works best for this recipe because of the shape of the meat. If you don't own an oval slow cooker, cut the meat in half to fit the one you have. Spoon this fork-tender, saucy beef over mashed potatoes.
Hearty Beef Stew: I actually completely fill the crock pot and use 2 McCormick beef stew packets so I use more than the 5 cups of veggies (probably closer to 8 cups). I make cornbread with it and the two of us can easily get 3 meals out of it! I cook it on high for 6 hours with more veggies. Its just as good warmed up in the microwave the next night! Yummy comfort food!
