Irish Stew (crockpot style)

I came across an Irish Stew recipe in a crockpot cookbook a couple of years ago. It's one of the few recipes that I have never followed completely on the first try. In fact, I've never made it the same way twice...but no one has complained so far.  We love it with elk roast for the meat.

Here are the basics.

2 lbs. stew meat
3 carrots, chopped
4 potatoes, chopped
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
1 qt. stewed tomoatoes
2 Portobello mushrooms, sliced
2 pkg dry onion soup mix
1-1/2 C water
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 C flour for thickening, if necessary

Cut up the vegetables. Put everything except the flour in the crockpot and stir. Cover the crockpot and set crockpot to high. Allow to cook for 8-9 hours (yes, hours).

About one hour before it is finished, add as much or little flour as you want for thickening.

Serve with biscuits or homemade bread.
