This is the first time I enjoyed eating stew. stew just never taste as good as it looks. This stew had a very good flavor and I had a lot of liquid. I just used my corning roast pan and fitted foil over very tight. I did not use the rutabage (personal thing) Thank you secret agent, now I will make stew again. TIP..Did everyone notice 15 oz tomato sauce ? that would be 2 small cans.
I have to agree with the other reviewer. This was tasty enough but way too dry for our liking. I used a dutch oven with a very tight fitting lid so that isn't the problem. No way did this look like the photo.
Seasonings were delicious, but there was not nearly enough liquid. I cooked this for 3 1/2 hours, and the liquid was gone. The result was tasty, but didn't look anything like a beef stew.
