   From:  Crock Pot Recipe Booklet
   To cook on the stove:
   Mix the flour, salt and pepper together.  Coat meat
   with flour mixture. In a large fry pan, wok, or Dutch
   Oven, brown the meat in a little oil (cooking a little
   meat at a time until all is browned). Place meat in a
   large pot and add about 3 cups beef broth,
   Worcestershire, garlic, bay leaf, paprika, carrots,
   onions and celery.  Stir to mix.  Cook over medium
   heat until it comes to a slow boil, reduce to low and
   continue cooking (4 hours or so) until the liquid is
   reduced and meat is tender, stirring frequently.  Add
   potatoes and continue cooking about another 30 minutes
   or until potatoes are tender.  Do not use Kitchen
   Bouquet.  If necessary, add a little flour mixed with
   water to thicken.
