This recipe sounds great. I don't understand the bacon part. 2 thick slices, packed 12/lb bacon. Please let me know cause I really want to cook this recipe. Thank you, dharper 1

How much water do I add to the crock pot to make this stew?

Hi guys, I just saw these messages. dharper - it's two thick slices of bacon. xx_victoria - I don't add any water but your crockpot may be different from mine, so you may need to add a small amount of water.

Doesn't make a very good "STEW", but I will make it again and use it a Philly Cheese Steak filling.

Haven't made yet but if the consistancy is like Philly Cheese Steak filling, I'd put it into a crescent dinner roll braid...

Pretty darn good - I had to do mine in a regular old soup pan, but Just added a little more water and it was fine. Also added some dried parsley and basil. Topped with a dollop of sour cream...yum!

Very good. Added a little more fat, but like I said very good. The bacon added is just right.
