Beef Stew Crock Pot Advice

I always use beef stock and add a good amount of worcestershire sauce because it gives it a great beefy flavor. Also add some fresh thyme to give the sauce some additional flavor. For a thickening agent ( I don't use one but if I did) I would say some cornstarch, or about 1/4 cup of boxed plain tapioca pudding. My hubby loves my beef stew and these are my secret tricks!
