I would surely render the fat out of the meat first, so it doesn't rise to the top of the soup - it is much more time consuming to scoop it out, let it cool, and then put it through a fat separator. I do think the use of sun dried tomatoes is a wonderful way to add great tomato flavor, especially in the winter when the store bought "fresh" ones are not so great. Plus they contain much less sodium than the canned variety.

I have not tried this yet, but would brown the meat first, before putting in the crock pot. I find browned meat adds a lot of flavor to a stew.
