      Love it! It tastes like something you'd get at a fancy restaurant! I left out the vinegar, but followed everything else and it was wonderful. I think next time I would cut the veggies a little smaller and put a few more in, would probably also add mushrooms - we like veggies. Thanks for posting!!

      A quick & easy basic stew - the beef was fork tender! I was sceptical about including the vinegar & wish that I'd stuck to my instincts; another time I will omit it entirely. We love mashed potatoes with gravy so I cooked them separately. Thanx Carol!

      Hi KittenCal; This recipe is awesome. I added some fresh mushrooms and celery near the end of the cooking. This is the only change that I made, the rest remained the same. The spices and the sauce were super-great, suite my palate perfectly. Served this over a nice fresh Portuguese Bun and just as an added touch, I had 2 glasses of my own Special Wine, ROSSO GRANDE. What a way to end a great dinner. Thank you so much for sharing. "Uncle Bill"
