Well today my wonderful creation was a bust. I made beef stew in the crock pot with tons of root vegetables, the left over tri tip meat and beef broth. I put it on low for 6 hours and waited for the house to start smelling like a wonderful stew. I did get the wonderful aroma but the broth kept getting thinner and thinner. In the end I had a wonderful plate of vegetables and meat and the broth was yuk. Any suggestions on how to get a thicker broth using the crock pot?
