Not only was this a very easy recipe to make (hardest part is cleaning and cutting up the vegetables) but it was delicious as well. The house smelled wonderful with the aroma produced from the stew while it was cooking. My husband and I had turnips for the first time in our lives too. I would recommend this recipe to anyone that enjoys beef and vegetables. I used more than a dash of thyme, oregano, and salt - probably a teaspoon or more of each for additional flavor. (Next time I might try using diced tomatoes rather than whole tomatoes just so that there are pieces throughout but it wouldn't change the recipe a bit.)
This was a very delicious stew! I didn't have any turnip in the house so I left that out, but I was very impressed with the fact that you didn't have to brown the stewing beef first - just throw it all in and stir - WoW!
I made this without the beef, used vegetable bouillon, and threw in a few extra spices, for the benefit of a couple of vegetarian friends. They, and I, loved it. I'll make another batch for myself, and I'll try stewing lamb instead of beef.
What an easy recipe! I used canned diced tomatoes, just so that everything would be "bite-size". The meat was incredibly tender. I had never tried a crockpot stew recipe before, but I will definitely make this again.
I must say this beats the beef stew I've been making by far. I used stewed tomatoes,and red potatoes. ALsom instead of an onion, I used 1 package of Lipton onion soup mix. Very good. I will be making this again!!
This was a good recipe for a Beef stew. Very flavoursome. I also added a liberal amount of fresh cracked black pepper. A very easy stew to make. Just the type of recipes I like; put it on and forget about it. It sure is a "no brainer".
This is a great recipe. I used a can of diced sundried tomatoes instead of the stewed tomatoes. It was awesome. The best part was how easy it was. Just chop everything up, chuck it in and away you go. No fuss no muss. My family loved it.
This is a very good meal for those of us with picky teenagers. My son and I loved it. On subsequent attempts, I changed 1/2 cup of the water to red wine and I add more salt and fresh ground pepper. It's a great recipe. Thank you for sharing.
This was very good. I made this last night for dinner and we served it on mashed potatoes. I omitted the potatoes in the stew because of the mashed potatoes. Also, I added a slurry to thicken it the last hour of cooking and used fresh thyme and oregano in place of the dried. Thank you so much for sharing.
very bland,despite adding garlic,red wine, red pepper flakes & pimenton. no gravy -- this is more like beef soup than beef stew.
