Today I'm going to be showing you how to make beef stew in the crock pot. This is a very easy recipe anyone can make. It's perfect for weekdays when you don't have a lot of time to spend cooking. Just add the ingredients to the crock pot,  cook on low 8-12 hours, then enjoy. 

Step 1: Ingredients you will need

 This is a very simple, cheap recipe to make. You will need....

• 2 pounds cubed stew beef
• 1/4 cup red or white wine (I feel that red tastes and looks better in this stew)
• 1 can cream of mushroom soup
• 1 can mushroom stems and pieces
• 1 envelope Lipton soup mix
• 1 package of egg noodles (optional) 
to add more flavor to your stew, I would suggest you pan fry the beef cube before adding them to the mixture. Also use half your wine with the soup base and use the other half to deglaze the pan you cooked the meet in then add that to the crockpot. it adds a lot of depth to the flavor of the stew.<br />
i second this remark. most of your &quot;depth&quot; flavors come from the browning of your meat. when you deglaze, you get the good bits in there, too. just talking about it is making my mouth water as we speak.
Can I cook it with Vermouth? It is white wine too :)<br />
