    I've never bought "made stock" before – but I suspect it is made with pre browned meat (Like you do at home when making your own stock) – therefore you don't need to brown the meat for the dish.
    If you were adding something with less flavour (even water) for the liquid content, – you would need to brown the meat. Hope that makes sense !

    All you're missing is a loaf of some nice rustic bread to tear chunks off of and dip it into the stew

    excellent work, i always think that flouring the beef for a stew creates a better sauce.

    that truly does look delicious! i like to toss in a can of diced or crushed tomatoes.
    also a splash of red wine gives it a little beef Beef bourguignon flavor.
    thanks for all your vids!!

    I love to use the slow cooker. Start something before you leave the house and come home to dinner in the evening.

    Ah! Would that beef were inexpensive across the Pond, here in the U.S.! Even stew meat and even ham hocks are expensive when they used to be cheap when I was a kid in the 1970`s!

    I was expecting you to add a bay leaf but I guess the smoked paprika is good enough? Thanks for the video 🙂

    I love Beef Stew, especially in the colder weather. I usually use my slow cooker and get everything ready in the morning and then by dinner time the beef stew is ready. It comes out soft and tender so delicious. I definitely want to try this recipe.

    I make beef and ale stew, and I brown the beef first, BUT you are right. The only reason the beef doesn't go tough on me is because the ale prevents that when I deglaze the pan. The ale seems to make sure the meat remains tender.
