Beef and Lamb Stew
Total TimePrep: 50 min. + marinating Cook: 8-1/2 hours

For all those vegetables, one cup of liquid is not even close to being enough. I have a large slow cooker; it was packed so full I had to squash it down to get the lid on; after 9 hours the meat was dry, the veggies were cooked nicely (although they didn't look nearly as appetizing as what shows in the picture!), but there was not nearly enough liquid to add cornstarch to in order to make any kind of gravy; although I suppose I could drain the vegetables, make a gravy with what liquid there is, and then add it back. But the meat is really quite inedible. It could be my crock pot, I suppose, but even looking at it from the beginning, I was skeptical that it would work.
