      My stew-loving husband adored it! This was my first attempt at making a stew without using the crock-pot. I don't think I'll ever go back. We all liked the consistency of the gravy of this recipe than all the crock-pot recipes I've tried. The brandy added an interesting heat/bite. It was very subtle, but there. I think next time I'll try red wine just to see what the difference is. I used top sirloin cut into rather large chunks, baby carrots and sliced mushrooms. I also added quartered red potatoes. Because of adding the potatoes, I had to double the flour, broth and brandy so everything was covered. Everything was cooked to perfection in the hour and a half called for. I served it with Low-Fat Cornbread. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe!

      This was okay, I expected the taste to be richer.

      Absolutely fabulous!!! The wait while it is simmering and the aromas wafting through your home are SO worth it! Mine thickened JUST right, I was a bit worried as I thought it would never cook down. I could not find small whole mushrooms so I used sliced and it seemed to work out quite well. This just SCREAMS comfort food and would be delicious served with warm bread to catch all the tasty sauce. A repeat for sure at our house, thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
