This will definitely be on my meal plan once the weather cools down a little more! Love beef stew!

Sounds almost like my recipe that I make on the stove top.  About the only difference is that I use a bottle of dark beer and a little beef broth in place of some of the water.

 Similar to the way I make mine, but stovetop and though I like okra, I don't use it in my beef stew, though I sometimes add rutabagas.
