I made a couple of changes to this very tasty stew. I added celery and seared the beef before adding to the Crock-Pot. I didn't have any broth on hand so I used Better Than Bullion to make a broth and used it to deglaze the searing pan before mixing it with the soup and adding it to the pot. It came out incredibly flavorful and tender. This has become my new go-to stew recipe.
