My family's new favorite! Got tired of using packets of stew seasoning sold at stores [some of those ingredient lists are frightening!], so looked for a recipe to make on my own. This is great! <br/><br/>My husband loved the "kick" from the cayenne, as did my teen [though I reduced the cayenne by half; would have been too spicy for us if I'd used full recipe value]. The flavor was great! <br/><br/>I used about 6 TB of the mixture to about 5 cups of water in the crock pot with 2 1/2 pounds browned stew meat. Threw in parsnips, carrots, blue potatoes, pearl onions, fresh mushrooms, kohlrabi leaves, bay leaf, celery, a large can of whole tomatoes [with the juice] & a can of white beans. The stew seasoning mix had 6 hours to steep and infuse it's delicious flavor into the meat & veggies. Wonderful!! We are keeping this recipe!

Great for stews and as a dry rub, i love it on baked chicken breasts, can also use the broth the chicken makes for pasta or rice, i just leave out the flour for dry rub

Perfect. Not too much or too little of anything. It has that simple, home-y, comforting taste I think of when I picture stew. Nothing fancy or unusual, but nothing lacking or tasteless. Thanks.

I am currently living in japan so my choice of spices is a bit selective. I was missing that good homemade beef stew taste from America so I searched the internet and found this recipe. I found most of e ingredients and mixed the American seasoning with the Japanese recipe ( which calls for soy sauce, sugar and some other ingredients I can't translate haha) and it's the best meal I have ever cooked! In fact I'm going to make another big pot today and the people at my job asked me to bri in some for them too. Thank you SOOOOO much for posting this!!!

Made half a batch because I wanted to try it first...should have gone all in! This is really good! I rubbed it on a roast and stuck it in the crockpot and it turned out delicious! Thanks for sharing!

I made this seasoning to add to my beef stew for a blog post on "The GOOD Pins" after discovering this recipe on Pinterest. I just wanted to say that it was absolutely perfect and made an okay stew into a FABULOUS stew that my husband won't let me forget. We will be trying it on venison this weekend. Thanks so much for sharing, I linked my readers to come check this one out!

Excellent. I blend 2T of this with 1/4 cup wine in my silver bullet and add it to my big pot of homemade vegetable soup. Delicious. I left out the rosemary and lowered the amounts of salt, pepper, garlic, cayenne and paprika (my personal preference), but still great !

I am including this mix in my Xmas baskets this year so prepared the recipe a few days ago. Today I made my usual beef stew using this recipe to dredge the meat in before frying. It is very good, with lots of flavour and I like the colour that the paprika adds to the "crust" which forms on the meat as it browns. I did reducethe pepper to 2 Tbsp and the cayenne pepper to1/4 tsp. Good recipe Kzim, thx for sharing this.
