I love this recipe because I throw it together and forget about it. So delicious on a blustery and cold day. Not to mention the "welcome home" smell your house has because of it.

This is an easy and delicious stew. i made half a recipe and I love marjoram so much I used 1 teaspoon and left out the thyme..The mix of broth and comsomme made a rich beefy flavor and I added 1/2 a box of frozen peas. Thanks for sharing Pooh Bear. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

A really easy dish to make. I substituted some red wine for one of the cans of beef consomme to add a bit more depth of flavour. Thanks Pooh Bear for a really tasty dinner!
