Crockpot Beef Stew

Always on the lookout for crockpot recipes that use ingredients we have on hand.  This recipe popped onto my radar recently, and it was perfect for me to tweak and use. 

I started off by chopping up 1 onion, 3 potatoes, 3 stalks of celery, 3 carrots, and some garlic cloves and throwing them into the crockpot. 
Then, I mixed about a pound and a half of grassfed stew beef with some flour, salt, and pepper. 
It went into the crockpot and I poured the liquids in.  What liquids, you ask?  
1 cup of tomato sauce and nearly 3 cups of red wine.
It cooked on low for about 7 hours.  Then, when it was almost ready, I mixed up 1/3 cup of flour with water to make a slurry, or thick mixture. 
I took a little of the liquid out of the crockpot and mixed it in.
It was mixed back into the crockpot to help it thicken up.  After about another 1/2 hour it was ready to serve.  
Served over rice?  DELISH!
