Awesome! Because of this dinner, I have declared myself "the beef stew master"! I used 1/3 c. flour and a 14 oz can of low-sodium beef broth. I also added a 14 oz. can of stewed tomatoes (drained), and I mixed 5 tsp. (about 1 1/2 Tablespoons) of dry onion flakes in with the flour. I used crimini mushrooms, and they were a nice addition. The veggies were perfect and the meat was flavorful and tender and not dry at all after 8 1/2 hours on low. I made Irish Rosie's Irish Soda Bread to serve with this, and it was the best comfort supper I've had in a long time. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!!
I made this a few days ago for my husband and he absolutely loved it! I forgot the mushrooms but it still turned out delicious. I listened to a few reviewers and added more broth and half a packet of Lipton's onion seasoning. I'll add a whole packet next time though. Also, I ended up having to thicken it in the end with a little cornstarch because of the excess liquid I added in the beginning. I love onions and chopped one up and added it to the mixture. This was my first time making a beef stew so I wasn't sure what to expect and was a little scared about the cooking process and even mixed it twice even though the directions said not to. It came out great and I can't wait to make it again soon!
This was really good! I browned the beef after tossing with flour and spices, made for a lovely rich flavour.
Great recipe and easy to do. Recommend using unpeeled whole carrots instead of baby ones.
This was really good. It was super easy and tasted wonderful. DH even liked it and he hates everything from the crockpot. The meat was dry but meat is always dry in my crock. The other thing I would say is that to call this a mushroom dish you should add a lot more mushrooms...like triple the amount in the recipe at least but it was great and I will make it again! Thanks for the recipe PanNan....
I made this for a lunch that I catered and the ladies loved it! I followed the recipe exactly except that I did add a little bit more water after reading other reviews. I probably didn't need it. The house smelled wonderful while this was cooking. I will definitely make again!
We loved this stew. It was extremely tasty. I did cook it a bit differently as I dont have a slow cooker. So I browned the meat, added the vegs and poured the sauce over the top. I covered it tightly with tin foil and placed it in the oven on low heat (150 C) and let it cook for 2 hours. It was tender and delicious. Thanks.
This is a beautiful recipe. Your cooking audience really needs to love mushrooms (mine does). The end results will always meet with raves. I have prepared this many times. I always add a chopped white onion to the mix. Fresh baby portabella mushrooms really add to the taste (and texture) of this recipe. Celery, turnips and rutabegas are great additions, too. If you opt to add these additional vegetables, add a splash or two more of broth and an additional sprinkle of wine. You will know when it is right. Since I am so very Southern (USA), I would suggest serving cornbread with this wonderful stew.
This was delicious. I'd like even more mushrooms, so will add even more next time since they shrink down so much. I also mixed sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. My slow cooker took about 6 1/2 hours on high.
Very delicious, hearty beef stew. I used pre-sliced baby bella mushrooms so there was very little chopping to do. Loved the flavor, quite filling, and just perfect for a cold, rainy day. Thanks.
