Toss the meat and flour in a ziplock bag, zip it up and shake well to coat.
Heat your oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the coated meat and garlic. Brown on all sides.
While that's cooking, prep your veggies (Peeling is optional but if you're using whole carrots, I would recommend it). Toss them in the slow cooker as you chop them up.
Mix 1 cup of the broth with the leftover flour and pour it over the meat in the skillet. Give it about 5 minutes to thicken up, make sure and stir it every few minutes.
Once meat mixture has thickened up, pour it in the crockpot too.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
