My family loves this stew

"I love this. I added sliced baby bella mushrooms, sliced my garlic thin and added a pinch of red pepper flakes which complemented this dish nicely. Also I used stir fry beef which after seasoning, I coated with flour. It needed only an hour simmer time to get tender. At the end, I thickened the broth with 2 tablespoons of corn starch mixed with a little water. My stomach is still smiling."

3. Add the stock, deglaze the pan if needed. Add the potatoes and carrots. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer, coer and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is very tender, stirring occasionally.

It was delicious but just slightly bland.

Very yummy stew! I did however change it a bit. I added some rosemary and parsley, and instead of making a rue (because I felt lazy) I used one packet of Knorr brown gravy with one cup of water.

I floured the beef, added rosemary, thyme, fresh parsley, bay leaf, & Worcestershire sauce, a few tomatoes and used half the water. I put dumplings on the top.

Good basic recipe. I dredged the meat in seasoned flour before browning, doubled the onion and garlic, used unpeeled, red potatoes and cut broth down to 4 cups. I put everything in the crockpot and let it go all day. A few minutes before serving, I stirred in a dash of worchestershire sauce, and a cup of frozen peas.

I enjoyed this immensely. I like the idea of blending some of the vegetables to make it thicker.

Very nice. I added some red wine and some thyme into the stock for added flavour and it was a big hit.

The flavor was ok, it didn't turn out like I thought it would. It smelled like a Chinese or stir fry dish, won't make again
