I was very pleased with the results. This was a great alternative to regular beef stew and was easy and tasty. I did add a few cloves of garlic, pepper, and some parsley. I made it on the stove and just left it simmer for about 2 hours before adding the mushrooms and cooking for another 10 minutes. (14)
