ISO help/advice making beef stew

I have made a beef stew a few times and it works well but each time I get alot of burned ingredient sticking to the bottom of the pan. I wonder if anyone can tell me how to avoid this.

Turn down the heat and stir more often.

I suppose that less heat and more stirring makes sense. I should try it in the oven too.

What has me so befuddled about this is that there is so much liquid in there.

Slow cooker makes a great beef stew, no stirring needed. And you don't add as much liquid.

Oh my. We have some great recipes here, check out the Slow Cooker thread! Go to Recipes, then Soups, Stews, and Casseroles, then select Slow Cookers.

When you see too much liquid, take the lid off. Evaporation is your friend... unless it looks dry

Oven, for sure.

It prevents burning on the bottom.
