Re: Crock pot beef stew?
I also have a really big crock pot and most
everything also comes out terrible. I assume because they are meant for smaller crock pots? But stew is one thing I can manage to have come out great! I don't brown the meat first but I think it is more flavorful if you do(not sure....). I just throw in the meat, 1 lb of baby carrots, an onion, the seasonings, and then fill the rest of the space with potatoes and fill with water. Always comes out great!!
