Layer the vegetables, meat and tomato mixture in your slow cooker in the morning and let it cook it until dinner. All you'll need to do is prepare the noodles and this beef stew will be ready to serve.

I loved the idea of this recipe as I'm often away from home for 12 hours and most slow cooker recipes are done in 6-7 hours. But it was not that flavorful (even though I used good quality smoked paprika and hot paprika) and the meat (beef bottom round roast cut up into 1" cubes) was dry after 11 hours. Won't make it again. (And 3 pounds of stew meat makes way too much!!!)
