Beef stew requires a cut of meat that is suitable for slow cooking such as gravy beef or chuck steak.

If you wish to add more liquid while the slow cooker is hot, be sure to add only very hot liquid. Adding cold fluids may crack the ceramic pot.

To save time, I cut the meat into chunks with kitchen scissors right over the pot.

Garnish with parsley or chives as desired.

If you want your veg to retain some texture, don't cook them for this length of time. Add the vegetables 2 hours prior to serving and turn the heat to "High".
