    Is the type of cut very important or will any cut of beef do well in the crockpot. IE a cheaper cut??

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      I think any cut would do good!

  2. Trish Wall says:

    This looks amazing. And I’m very picky about Beef Stew. I’ve made the most awesome Beef Stew for many years (since I was 19, and I’m 61 now) called Old Fashioned Beef Stew. It’s a concoction of stew beef with many spices, onions, carrots, mushrooms, and potatoes also cooked in a slow cooker. The secret spice is Allspice. Just a little and it adds something special to it. Also, plenty of black pepper. But this one, your recipe, I’ve GOT to try. It looks so good and easy!!!

      Thanks Trish! I’ll have to try your Allspice idea! Sounds yummy!
