1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 beef stew seasoning packet
1 can diced tomatoes, with juice
2 cups beef broth (2 cups water + 2 tsp beef bouillon paste or cubes)
2 medium onions, chopped
3 medium potatoes, diced
4 carrots, sliced
4 stalks celery, chopped
Place meat in a large plastic bag. Measure flour and pour into the bag with the meat, and shake to coat.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add stew meat, and cook until evenly browned on the outside. Transfer to a slow cooker along with the carrots, potatoes, celery, garlic, and onion. Add tomatoes.
In a bowl, stir together 2 cups of boiling water, 2 tsp of bouillon paste, and 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce; pour into the slow cooker.
Cover and set the crockpot to Low, and cook for 8 hours, or high for 5 hours. Meat should be fork tender when done.
