Excellent recipe! I made a couple of adjustments. I used chicken stock instead of water and omitted the gravy mix. (I didn't have any on hand.) Also did not have marjoram and celery and it tasted fine without them. I cooked it on low for 8 hours. The meat was quite tender and the stew flavorful. I served it with homemade bisuits that I had baked and frozen previously. I heated those up in the oven straight from the freezer; split them and buttered them; and then toasted them (buttered side down, in the pan until they were a golden brown. My daughters loved this. My 5 year-old said that she would rate it 100!
