Delicious! Wouldn't change a thing!!!
This is a spectacular stew! The flavor is dead on and it thickens perfectly on its own. I used only 2 pounds of stew meat and used about 1 1/2 cups sliced carrots. I also used presliced mushrooms which I added in at the beginning of the cooking time. Dh begged me to make this stew again. I served it over chive buttered egg noodles and had garlic rolls with it. It was a fantastic meal.
Easy & delicious! I didn't brown the meat & just cut a chuck roast into cubes & added the other ingredients as stated in the recipe. I couldn't find beef consomme, so I substituted organic beef broth & added a beef bouillion cube. I used a good italian red (montepulcciano) & added a bay leaf & 1 tsp of thyme. After the artichokes & mushrooms were cooked through, I turned the crockpot to high & added a cornstarch and water mixture to thicken. I served this with brown buttered wide egg noodles & french bread to sop up the fantastic sauce. My family loved it & ask that I make it again sometime! A yummy, great change from a traditional beef stew. Thaks!
