Brown meat in oil. Add water and salt. Cover and cook until tender. (We cooked the meat for about 10 minutes.) Put meat and the juices, water and oil from browning in slow cooker. Add carrots, onion, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce and cook on low all day. Before serving, combine cornstarch with 1⁄4 cup cold water. Add to beef mixture. Cook until thickened. Serve over noodles or rice.
