    Dancer^'s Note:

    This also can be made in a crockpot. I add different veggies, cubed squash, and 1/2 can baby peas, just added the peas the last 5 minutes of cooking. This is great on a cold winters day. Enjoy!

      My husband took one bite and said, "this is delicious!" I fully agree. I only had canned mushrooms on hand but will use fresh next time. I added a 1/2 cup of cream sherry. The wine is definitely a great addition. I did add the carrots and mushrooms early and later threw in a few frozen peas with the potatoes.

      This was excellent! Just what I've been looking for. I'm not a fan of the "red" stews (tomato juice, tomato soup, etc.), but DH is...or was...until he tried THIS tonight! This will definitely be the stew I will make from now on except, of course, when DH has a hankerin' for the "other" stew! Sooooo glad I stumbled onto this recipe! Thanks, Dancer^, for sharing.

      Loved it, and so did everyone else! Thanks.
      Next time I'll skip the flour as I don't see it making any difference, and adding a tbs of 'herbs de provence'.
      PS remember folks that browning the beef does not mean well done!
