I'm cooking a beef stew in the crock pot as we speak. I don't have a lot of experience with stews. How much liquid should there be in relation to the rest of the stuff? At the moment I have 2cups of onion soup & 1/2 cup of red wine. And the liquid barely peaks out from under the meat and veggies. I figure that will change, but if I wanted to add more what would I add?
Also at the moment the sauce is not that flavorful. (again I hope that will change as it has 4 hours more to cook). The spices that the recipe called for were parsley, pepper, and salt. What would I add to give it more flavor and how long should I wait before making any of these decisions?
Sorry, I really don't know what I'm doing.
