Sweet and Savory Stew

Recipe Description
I like it because there is little prep. Pop it in the crock pot and you're good to go.

The original recipe called for beef, parsnips and diced tomatoes, any meat, veggie and stewed tomatoes will work.​
Preparation Steps:
Only real prep' is the cutting and flouring of the 'meat'.

Serve it over rice.​
Level of Difficulty:
Time Needed:
15 mins. prep - 5H-7L hours​
1/3 cup flour
2 teaspoons paprika
2 pounds 'meat' trimmed, cut in 1" cubes and blotted dry
