      This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written but added more carrots and potatoes then indicated. I didn't add the optional mustard. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

      I love stew and this one was great! Had almost two pounds of stew meat so I added a couple extra potatoes, carrots, and beef broth. Didnt have dijon mustard on hand like I thought I did so that was not added. Cooked this slowly for almost two hours and the meat was fork tender. Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef - Fall 2012

      We had mixed reviews here regarding this stew. My DH proclaimed it wonderful and deserving of 5 stars. I would give this recipe 4 1/2 stars if I could. On the other hand I found that using 2 cans of stewed tomatoes gave more acidity to the stew than I really enjoy. I also will replace the thyme with basil next time as I thought the thyme was too strong of an herb and tried to overpower the flavors. I will not blame the chef for my personal dislike of the thyme since I believe it is a matter of personal taste. I will make this stew again, but will substitute one can of the stewed tomatoes with 1 can of diced tomatoes to counteract some of the stronger flavors. Thanks for posting a new way to make beef stew than the same old method I have used for years. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
