How to give beef stew more punch?

ziggystardust | Jan 9, 2010 07:18 AM

I'm planning on doing a slow cooker beef stew this weekend. Other than the meat itself, it'll be a pretty standard mix; carrots, onions, potatoes and celery. Every recipe I've tried including my mother's, I've found hearty but ultimately bland. I want to give it more kick. Last time, I put in cardomom, which was nice. This time I'm thinking of paprika. Would that work? Any other suggestions?
