This is excellent, and better after 1-2 days when the seasonings have soaked in!

Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Stir into stew. Bring to a boil and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Sauce not to our taste but I think I could work up a good variation using stock instead of Worcester Sauce

Added 1 cup beef broth, 1 tbsp sugar, and 1/2 can tomato paste, leaving out the ketchup, and it added a smooth rich flavor to recipe.

My husband gave this a "5", but my son and I didn't like it nearly as much. We both gave it a "2." I didn't really like the ketchup component...think it could be improved with diced tomatoes instead.
