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

given how simple this recipe is, I was surprised at how flavorful it was too! my family really enjoyed it. I didn't change much, just added about a Tbsp of soy sauce and another 1-2 Tbsp of ketchup because I know we like these flavors in beef stew. Next time I may add more carrots as well.

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
