    Very Good
    Very easy.
    Traditional beef stew as advertised.
    I'll try to add Italian seasoning next time.

    Agreed, seemed to be missing something flavorwise. Was thinking red wine also for some body, it was a little bland. Aldo, watch your slow cooker size! Mine has always been big enough for recipes, but this overflowed it. Will have to half the recipe next time. - 1/17/14
