I did add the garlic with the vegtables, I used carrots,potatoes mushrooms and frozen peas. It was a hit and easy to do! I will make it again. thanks
I made this in a Crock-pot. This was easy and a good way to make stew in a Crock-pot as well as the oven. For 1 3/4 lb beef stew meat I used a sliced sweet onion, 1 very large pasrnip, 2 med. carrots and 3 potatoes cut into bite sized pieces and placed under the beef cubes. Used the soups recommended and used only 1/2 cup of red wine to compensate for liquid reduction necessary for slow cooker cooking. I did not need any thickening agent, great as it was. Thank you for posting this nice stew recipe.
Very good! I added baby carrots, baby onions and peas. I was going to make mashed potatoes to serve this over but I was too lazy by the time this was done cooking ;) so we just ate it by itself and it was fantastic, even without the potatoes! It was super easy to make and so yummy!!!! I can't wait to make it again! I would say the servings are more like 4-6 instead of 6-8 though. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!
Adding yet another 5 star rating w/some changes I made. I used Cream of Onion, Cream of Mushroom, French Onion Soup w/about 2 TBS dried bread crumbs stirred in it, 3 cloves of smashed garlic,1 small bottle of Merlot, pepper on the meat. Cooked at 300 degrees in the oven for 3 hours. At the end, I took out 1/2 C gravy, added some sour cream, and then served over noodles, for two. Plenty of leftovers for another day. Just delicious. I have never cared for tomatoes in beef stew, didn't want to chance the vegetable timing. If I want pots/onions/carrots I always roast them separately w/a little olive oil on a cookie sheet about 45 minutes at 400 degrees. Thanks Ginny for a great, quick, simple recipe.
slighly adjusted for our taste- i used golden mushroom instead of tomato soup, and my veggies were carrots, onion, potato, celery, and mushrooms. Used the broth instead of wine, but only because I didn't have any. Good and easy and I'll be making it again.
Bet stew ever!!!Added coke instead of wine.
My husband could not stop saying that this was the most amazing stew he's ever had (which actually got kinda annoying :) ). I used 5 large russets (well scrubbed and quartered), 1 medium onion, 2 cloves chopped garlic, left out the wine and used 1 can of Beef Consume soup. Mixed everything together and cooked in the Crockpot for about 5 hours on high. Thank You!!!
Delicious! I made in a crockpot; put everything in to start including veggies and cooked on high for 4 hours. For veggies I used potatoes, carrots, celery and onion. Next time I'll also add garlic. SO EASY!!!
Absolutely the best beef stew I've had, but I'll never tell my mother that.
Did this a little differently-I had about 2.5 cups leftover roast. I put the soups & wine on to simmer with a cup of beef broth. Sauteed 1 sliced onion, chopped carrot & celery with garlic until soft. Diced up 2 cans of new potatoes and cubed the roast. Tossed it all together, heated through.
