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!

I loved this recipe. It cooked for 10 hrs as that is how long I am at work. I also didnt spend the time to brown anything. I added all to crockpot and used red wine and mixed all together. This still created a wonderful gravy to pour over hot cooked noodles. thank you for this recipe!

Oh my, Miss Annie, this one deserves 10 stars! I was surprised when I dredged my beef that it used all of the seasoned flour. I used a merlot red wine. I am often not fond of beef stews, but the basic sauce on this one is to die for. Then the addition of the artichokes adds a tangy surprise for the palate in the eating. Outstanding!

Sorry, but I wanted to let others know this is not a child friendly meal. My kids eat most things, this, however, was not to their taste due to the complex flavors in it (although they love artichokes on their own just not marinated). I think the flavors are too heavy, the beef consomme, the red wine, marinated (vinegar,briney) artichokes, earthy mushrooms, meat, were just not that harmonious together. Have to say that me and my husband weren't that thrilled with it either.
