I cut this back to two servings and used the crock pot because of the heat. I used the ingredients ask for with big chunks of stew beef and it came out tender and yummy after 2 1/2 hrs on low. this will be back again during the cold weather. :D

This is right tasty. I added some mushrooms, and also covered the pot to simmer it. We had it with rice, but it would be good with noodles, too. Thanks for posting!

A nice warm meal on a cool rainy night. I like this recipe because of the long cooking time which will make the cheapest cut of meat tender and good. I think I will also double the spices as one of the other reviews said. I browned the round steak in batches. Step 2 and 3 did not say to cover this as it cooked but I did. I think it will burn if you don't. I added some S&P at the table. loof, thank you for posting and I'll make this again. Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders 2008* game
