Slow Cooker Beef Stew

I love cooking with a slow cooker.  It’s a relatively easy way to have a hearty meal without spending hours in the kitchen ... especially helpful if you have to work during the day. 2 1/2 lbs round or swiss steak, cubed 32 oz can diced tomatoes 2 cans (16 oz) corn, drained 5 medium carrots, sliced 7 medium red potatoes, cubed 2 celery stalks, sliced 1 small yellow onion, chopped 1/2 lb green beans, cut flour (enough to coat meat) 1 1/2 cups beef broth (can, cubes or crystals) 2 teaspoons garlic powder 1 tablespoon basil 1 teaspoon oregano dash or two cilantro white pepper to taste Coat meat with flour.  Add all other ingredients except tomatoes, beans and corn.  Cook on "Low" for about 4 hours.  Add beans and cook for 3 more hours.  Add the corn and tomatoes and cook for 3-4 more hours.   Great served with fresh bread or dinner rolls. Note:  Beef broth crystals have a lot of salt, use sparingly Stew meat can be used, but is more expensive than swiss or round steak.  Using a slow cooker makes even "cheap" meats tender and you can't taste the difference.
