In a skillet brown 2 cloves of garlic in 3 tbsp. olive oil. Add floured meat pieces to skillet and brown well. The meat doesn’t need to be cooked all the way through; it will have more time to cook once in the crockpot. Browning the meat is the key to my beef stew for the crockpot and gives it great flavor. Once browned, place in crockpot.
