I've made this a few times now and it is always great. The only thing I change is the tomatoes ... I don't like whole tomatoes so I'll either run them thru the blender or buy the crushed. A big, heaping bowl of this and a piece of cornbread and you've got a meal fit for a king.

Made this today and it was delicious. Cubed a chuck roast instead of the stew beef and made my own soup mix (see Recipe 110331-Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix) instead of the Lipton's. Very hearty and filling; perfect and complete meal for the winter months! Thank you for posting.

This is fabulous, and so forgiving. I had boiler onions, rutabaga, beef, potatoes, baby carrots, diced tomatoes, jarred chopped garlic, no celery, and only beef bullion cubes. This all still came together so well, and the broth was so rich. The veggies and meat were tender by the end of the day cooking, and they had such fanatstic flavor. I'll definitely be making this again this winter. I didn't use the cornstarch slurry, it was great without it. Thanks!!

I am new to the cooking world and was so nervous while making this stew. It seemed so easy I knew it couldn't possibly taste good, but it was wonderful... Even my "stew hating" son liked it. My husband who never finishes his food had two bowls. I made it exactly as the recipe stated except for the cornstarch at the end...it was already thick enough for our taste....Great Recipe!

This was good. I omitted the celery and added some parsley. Otherwise, I followed the directions exactly.

Followed recipe exact. And it just didnt do it for me and my family. Too much tomato or onion soup/beef powder or something. Tasted like chucky vegetable soup with beef. But I can totally see others liking it. It cooked just right. Looked great. Smelled great. Just not for us.

Loved it. My very picky husband actually approved. I made it with one can of beef stock instead of bouillon. I used 6 potatoes, stewed tomatoes and didn't need the cornstarch, cold water. Yummy. Thank you.

Sorry but I just did not get excited over this recipe. It had a very pronounced tomato taste and that was about all. Even hubby thought it was just mediocre. Glad I tried it once.

Great everything about this recipe.While preparing it I thought it was going to be weird because of the tomato but once it came out and I gave it a taste I realized that is what made it taste so good.This will be a life saver when in a rush.
