It's been cold and snowy here in Nebraska. I was aching for a bowl of beef stew so I brought up the Allrecipes.com website and found this simple recipe, and hoped for the best. What I got was a very easy, flavorful stew. It hit the spot... ooooh yeah...yum.
Place meat in slow cooker. In a small bowl mix together the flour, salt, and pepper; pour over meat, and stir to coat meat with flour mixture. Stir in the garlic, bay leaf, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, onion, beef broth, potatoes, carrots, and celery.
Cover, and cook on Low setting for 10 to 12 hours, or on High setting for 4 to 6 hours.
