This was very good. I used extremely cheap veal stew meal which was SOOOO tender. The stew had a very rich, buttery taste. Very smooth. I felt like it was more of a stroganoff than a stew. The sauce/broth was not thick at all, I don't know if a bit of corn starch would have thickened it up a bit. I served it with buttered egg noodles. We really liked it and would recommend it highly.

This was really creamy but sauce was a bit too thin for us. We served it with popovers but it would have been better over noodles or rice to help soak up the extra sauce.
