I didn't have enough liquid so I added a small can of V8. After the 45 minutes, the carrots were still crunchy. I had to add more time. I would have like more mushrooms in the stew. I liked how they were cooked and then added to the stew. It had a great taste. Thanks 4-H mom. Made for Casserole event in photo forum.
