  3. Shake the excess sea­son­ing off the beef, then stir the beef into the hot skil­let with the onion and mush­rooms.
  4. Brown the beef even­ly until no longer pink. Drain and dis­card the excess grease.
  5. Trans­fer the beef mix­ture into the slow cook­er.
  6. Place the pota­toes, car­rots, cel­ery, gar­lic, Marsala wine, and Worces­ter­shire sauce into the crock with the beef mix­ture.
  7. Pour the beef broth and toma­toes into the crock, and stir in the onion soup mix and 1 more tea­spoon of smoked papri­ka.
  8. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 10 — 12 hours or on High for 4 to 6 hours. Sea­son to taste with salt and black pep­per.

Option­al: If you want to add peas, add 1 c. one hour before stew is to be served.

NOTE: If you like a thick­er stew: Com­bine corn­starch and water in a small bowl, stir­ring out most lumps. Grad­u­al­ly add the mix­ture into the stew until thick­ened.
