Granny's Five Hour Beef Stew

When my children were young and it was time to pick out our Christmas tree, we would go to the nearest tree farm to cut our own. We lived in a much colder climate at that time, so it was usually a very cold and snowy morning. I would put this stew in the slow cooker and by the time we got home and got the tree up and decorated, this stew would be just about perfect! We live in a much warmer climate now and I've found that even on the hottest days, I can put this stew in the slow cooker and have a nice meal without heating up my kitchen. Either way, this is a great comfort food..Enjoy
