Just a wonderful simple full of beefy goodness stew. I didn't not flour the beef but did use a cornstartch slurry to thicken at the end. I added the potatoes about halfway thro cooking only because sometimes I find they get overccoked. I also added more broth but I also added more veggies ( personal likes is all) Made for PRMR Tag
Definitely a good recipe to try. I just basically used this recipe as a guide and added my own spices but it turned out really juicy and yummy, even the soup itself was so delicious. I used everything that was on the recipe, except a little less flour because I didn't want my soup to be too thick. In addition, I added: tsp of rosemary (dried) tsp of thyme (dried) A dash of onion powder A dash of garlic powder 3Tbsp of A1 sauce Tbsp of kikkoman soy sauce
way too much pepper, and I only put it in the flour mixture that the beef rolled in! Also, boring in other flavors, I guess I like my beef stew with wine added to it. meat was tender though.
