I skipped the recipe and went with what I had in the kitchen plus a couple things.
2# Beef. I got the cubed because it was cheaper
Mushrooms (manager's sale)
Left over bell pepper
Red potatoes (BB)
Bean (from the garden, including pods)
Couple handfuls of fresh cranberries
Few leaves of Basel
Beef stock from cubes
Tossed all in slow cooker on low for 8 hours.
