I used less water as other suggested and it still turned out really runny. I also used canned tomatoes which worked out fine. This was just okay for us.

Next time I would use less liquid. Just enough to cover beef and vegetables

Nice, flavourful stew. The gravy is very runny, more like soup. I did thicken it up a bit. I didn't have bouillon cubes so I used beef broth in place of the cubes and water. Next time I will use less liquid. The meat came out very nice. It really does need 8 hours to cook but it smells so nice when you open that door after work. Thanks for the recipe. We will try this one again. I forgot to say that I added peas about an hour before it was done. To the leftovers I added some frozen bean. There is something about stew that is always better the second time around.

I made this yesterday and it turned out very well. I added a couple extra carrots and an extra bouillion cube. I found it to be a little soupy, so I think next time I will use some cornstarch to thicken it slightly. But, overall, it was very tasty and very quick to make. Thanks!

I made this last night and it turned out pretty well, I started it too late so I set my crock pot on high for 4 hours, it needed about 5 1/2. But it tasted great, everything was very tender. I did end up using 4 bouillon cubes and a good glug of red wine.

I don't have a crock pot so I added all the ingredients to my stockpot, brought it to a boil and then turned it to the lowest setting. I also added about a tablespoon of cornstarch to the stew to give it a thicker sauce. Delicious!!!

I cut the bouillon down to three cubes and added a shot of the red wine, as somebody else posted. This was a delicious and easy stew. My fussy son AND fussy husband liked it. Thank you!

This turned out well. I left out some of the ingrediants. Did not use bay leaves, boullion cubes or oregano. I did add garlic and 1 tsp salt. Also 1 1/2 cups of water works well. I browned meat first after I coated it with flour. MDD and her friend loved it.

This was okay. I made it in the crockpot following the directions exactly and ended up with something resembling soup and nothing resembling stew. So I let it simmer on the stove for a bit, and by the time it was thick enough there was almost no gravy at all. It was also so salty we could barely eat it, but I think that was my fault because cooking it down probably concentrated the salt flavor. The flavor of this was very good, though, so I need to come up with a way to make a nice thick stew with enough gravy to cover the meat and veggies without it being so salty.
