Yummy Beef Stew

1-2 cups (depending on how meaty you like it) of chopped up roast (if you live in our house, its elk roast)
1 cup of chopped carrots
1/2 cup of chopped celery
3 small potatoes cubed
1/2-1 cup of peas
6 cups beef broth (of 6 cups water and 6 TSP of beef bouillon)
1/2 tsp garlic bead sprinkle, or some kind of garlic seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of pepper (or less if you don't want it too spicy)
cornstarch and water (optional)
i threw the broth, carrots, celery, potatoes and seasonings in the crock pot at about 11:00 am on high, and let that all cook until the vegetables were tender. (about 6 hours but check it often! if they start to get too soft turn it to low) at about 4:30 i added the roast, and peas. Ok now here's where your preference comes in. we like more of a gravy like soup, so i added some cornstarch dissolved in cold water (like 1 TBS cornstarch and 1 TBS water), let it cook for like 10 min and checked it, then i repeated the process until it was think enough. taste it, add more seasonings if you would like, and eat with fresh bread and butter, or store bought bread like us :)
it was so so yummy! kinda spicy, so if you dont want it spicy skip the pepper until the end. to be honest, i usually under season things until its almost ready, then add seasonings so i can make sure it tastes right!
