For beef stew I stir in a pkg of brown gravy mix if thickener is needed.

I like your idea. I never thought of that.

I like this idea too.

I'm going to use it the next time that I make beef stew. Thanks.

Depends on what I'm cooking as to what I use as a thickner.

I have used:

crushed tortilla chips (chili's and really thick hearty stuff)
tater flakes ( I use these mainly when I make a boo boo)
flour / water (when I don't care about the cloudiness)
cornstarch / water (when I want thickened without cloudiness)
roux (when I want some color/flavor added to my dish/gravies)

probably a few others I can't think of.

For stew I flour my meat before browning and it makes its own gravy. I brown the meat and cook in the crock pot all day. Then I add fresh cooked veggies before serving.
