To be honest, I *never* add water to a crockpot stew, mainly because I
usually have something really wet, like tomatoes, or maybe a shake or 2 of
low salt soy sauce or a little tomato sauce, and as things cook the foods
release enough water on their own.
Also, I usually double up on the spices, too, because after 8-10 hours of
heat they do get kind of used up.
