Italian Stew

1 lb stew meat cut into small peices
1 lb Hot sausage browned
1 onion diced
4 ribs celery diced
3 cloves garlic minced
6 potatoes diced
1 can kidney beans drained and rinsed
4 cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 cups beef broth
1 T dried basil
3 bay leaves
1T dried oregano
1 t dried rosemary
1 pinch red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste~ about 1 T each
Add all the ingredients except for the canned tomatoes to a large, at least 6 quart, crockpot. Puree the tomatoes in a blender until smooth. Pour over other ingredients in the crock pot. Cook 4-6 hours on high or 5-10 on low. This stew would freeze very well without the potatoes
