In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the bacon, then remove to a slow cooker, reserving the fat in the skillet.
Brown the stew meat in the reserved bacon fat. Sprinkle with flour, then remove the meat and place into the slow cooker.
Add all the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker and give it a good stir. Place the lid on and cook for 4 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low.
Once the stew is done cooking, mix together the toppings in a small bowl and top each portion of stew for a pop of freshness.
