Slow Cooker Beef Stew

This is what you call comfort food. A bowl of beef stew with a nice piece of bread. I can't even begin to tell you how delicious this stew is. The meat is like butter, just melts in your mouth. Walking into your home and getting smacked in the face with this aroma after a long day at work. There is just nothing like it!!
You will need:

2 lbs. of stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup of flour
1 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. of freshly ground black pepper
3 cups of beef broth
1/2 cup of good red wine
1 beef bouillon cube
1 Tbs. of Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs. of hot sauce
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. of paprika
16 oz. bag of baby carrots or 4 carrots, sliced
3 potatoes, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, sliced
1 Tbs. of dried rosemary

Put the meat into the slow cooker insert. In a small bowl combine flour, salt and pepper and pour over meat; toss the meat to coat with the flour. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to mix well. Cover and cook on low 10 hours. Stir the stew before serving. If you find that it is not thick enough for you, simply mix 1 Tbs. of cornstarch with 3 Tbs. of water and add to the stew and cook in the slow cooker for another 5 minutes.
 Bon Appetit!
