"I bought a nice shoulder roast and decided to make a beef stew with it. The prep time includes prepping the vegetables.Remember as always, the seasonings can be adjusted to your own personal tastes.For extra color add some frozen peas near the end of cooking time.Now the prep time seems like it might be too long,but it results in a very good crockpot meal.Also remember crockpot cooking times vary, so adjust this recipe according to your crockpot.If desired, serve with a salad and crusty bread.If you decide to try this, I hope you enjoy it. :) Posted to ZAZZ on April 11th.2013"
