So...I made up a recipe. No specifics on it... Here's what I did: 1.51 lbs. of stew meat (pre-cut up into 1 inch squares) Tossed the stew meat around in some Thyme leaves and flour and put in the bottom of the crock pot. On top of the stew meat, I put some chopped onion. On top of the onion, I put onion soup mix and garlic powder. On top of all of this, I added 2 cups of water and 1 cup of red wine. Added a LIBERAL amount of worcestershire sauce. On top and surrounding the meat, I put in about 2 handfuls of baby carrots and 2 large potatoes that have been cut up. Didn't look like there was enough solution, so I added some more wine and water and then put a dash of garlic powder on top of the potatoes with the carrots. Added some more worcestershire sauce on top. Set on high...should be ready around 7 tonight. How awful will it be???
