The idea of a crock pot is to make your life easier. Not much is easier than this family pleasing stew. Using things you probably have on hand anyways, you spend about 10 to 15 minutes prep time and eat in 8 hours.
I liked it a lot and my wife loved it. It is so easy and really quite excellent.
Notes: I left the mushrooms out of my version of this recipe. We have food allergies in the family so we never do mushrooms. I have listed them as optional. There was also a suggestion to add a drained can of diced tomatoes if you want a tomato based stew. Also included as an option.
