This made tender and flavorful stew; and it was super easy too! Made as written except left out the thyme (ran out). Served this with mashed potatoes and cheesy bread. Was a wonderful Sunday dinner. Made for Newest Zaar tag.

I picked this recipe because it sounded like comfort food and a stew I made 30 years ago when I was a young bride and before I even heard of a crockpot! It was wonderful, hot and good - perfect comfort food without lots of calories (even better!). Halved the recipe with no problems = made in a 1 3/4 qt corning ware casserole (shower gift of over 30 years ago -- memories and comfort food!). Thanks for sharing!
