Crockpot Classic Beef Stew

This recipe came from, this stew is delicious, one of the best I've made. Great for a cold winter day- especially this winter we've been having. A perfect comfort food.

Add the onion to the skillet, turn down heat to low and let sauté for about 10 minutes, then add in tomato paste and coat the onion, then transfer to crockpot. Pour wine in skillet and scrap up brown bits, then transfer to crockpot. Add the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker and stir. Cook on low for 7 1/2 hours or on high for 4.
