Slow Cooker Beef Stew

I found this recipe on awhile back and it sounded good so I decided this would be dinner tonight, along with a loaf of Irish Brown Soda Bread (yum!!)

I am posting the recipe as it's originally written, but my tweaks are as follows: I followed the recipe as written and let it cook 3 hours on high then 3 hours on low in the crock pot. I checked it and found the taste bland, it wasn't thick enough and there wasn't enough liquid. I tweaked by fixing a packet of brown gravy on the stove and adding that, along with a dash of thyme, rosemary, garlic powder and several shakes of seasoned salt. For personal preference, I added about 1 cup of fresh grean beans and a can of mushrooms too. With the changes it is very yummy and the right consistency I was looking for. The meat cooked up nice and tender (I used pre-cut stew meat).
