I used this recipe with a pound of venison cube steak. This is basically a nice beef stew recipe, nothing extraordinary but definitely a staple for winter comfort foods. I omitted the tomato sauce and added 2 cups of water. I felt with all those nice vegetables, and the very slightly stronger flavor of the venison that canned beef stock wasn't necessary. It was very flavorful and the meat was lovely and tender. I might omit the flour next time because I think the potatoes do a nice job of thickening the stock and that the flour used for dredging actually makes it a bit too thick. Overlal, a good, basic recipe.
Made this for supper tonight, I did omit the tomato sauce and added a can of beef broth, only used a fourth of a pepper and chopped it small, added some diced carrots. Will make this again, Thanks.
