This was a very good stew. I halved the recipe and it was plenty for my family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The meat was a bit dry, but with some of the gravy it was fine. I did use sweet potato because my son doesn't like regular white ones. I would definitely make this again.
I increased the Worcestershire to 1 Tablespoon, also increased pepper and no celery[hubz request] DELICIOUS! I will be making this one again. Thanks for a simple recipe!!
I left out the Worcestershire sauce, swapped sweet potatoes for the white ones. It was great! The kids thought it was too spicy, next time I'll half the pepper. I did put in the cornstarch at the end, didn't seem to thicken up too much. Even though I cooked it on high, the meat was still very tender. Overall it was very good and I will make it again.
