What a wonderful, flavourful slow cooker stew! I love the combination of prunes and beef, so this was a winner even before I started making it. And it really was a winner. Since I was a bit short of time, I skipped the browning of the beef and just put it in the crockpot without brownig before, and it still was adorable. Will make it again with the browning of the meat which probably is even better. Thanks for sharing! Made for FCY game
