Great stew! And also a great way to clean out the veggie drawer -- made as directed except used less tomatoes and added a lot of water to the stew. I also used Italian seasoning and a lot of pepper. It is even better heated up the second day! Thanks for sharing this great stew recipe which we will be having again soon!

Wonderful! I've made this twice now. I made some small changes: I saute lots of vegetables in olive oil: onions, carrots, potatoes, red pepper, celery, etc., all cut in large pieces. After those are all sauteed, I add a 15-ounce can of tomatoes and two or three cups of beef broth and a can of beef in gravy, also garlic and Italian seasoning. Mushrooms go in after a while, and peas a little while before serving. Very delicious. Very high class stew, even with the canned beef.

What a wonderful winter stew! I made it a meal by adding one pound of lean ground beef (added after sauteeing the onions) and left out the mushrooms. Also, instead of the oregano and basil, I used 2 tsp of Italian seasoning. It made plenty for leftovers and freezing some, too. I'll definitely make this again.

I used about 1 c. split peas because I didn't have any peas and that made it a good thick stew, but I had to cook it longer (probably about 2 hrs) to get the peas soft. I used 1 quart jar of my mom's canned tomatoes which seemed a little light. I did add a little water because the split peas were soaking up all the liquid. I think it would be good with some hot green chiles added. It made for a very comforting and filling winter dinner, served with some parmesan cornmeal biscuits and a dark beer. Thank you for posting!

This is awesome and I have everything in the menu except for basil leaves and 2 cans tomatoes. I substituted the crushed and stewed tomatoes with 2 cans diced tomatoes as that's what I had and it was excellent. The kind of tomatoes I had made it more soup like then stew but that's ok too. Oh I just found crushed Basil leaves in the cabinet I will add some of those along with a little Tabasco sauce and Italian seasoning.

This can't be any easier or any more delish! It's made with veggies that you normally have on had -- or if you don't have what's listed, just make up some variations! The only change I made was to add 3 cups of veggie broth to thin it a bit. With the two big cans of tomatoes, it has a distinct tomato soup flavor that I enjoyed very much. It will make much more than 6 big bowls, so for those of you looking at the nutritional information, it's even lower calorie/fat than listed. (And I didn't even come close to using the 4T oil for browning the onions.) This healthy, filling stew will be made frequently!
