I didn't have any beef broth, so I used water and a red wine. I followed everything else exactly. It was the best beef stew I've ever had. I am not a fan of stew, but this one I will make again. My husband also loved it.
Awesome favour. I increased the meat & garlic & added some finely chopped jalapeno pepper & radishes. I help blend the flavours abit more, I added a dash of garlic peppercorn spice at the end. We like our stew thick so I added some tomato paste & flour when the potatoes were added. Worked out great & the cooking time is band on, thanks for sharing.
I've been married almost 15 years & have a family of 5 and this is the first Beef Stew I have ever made. It was awesome. Everyone loved it. Instead of top round roast I used extra lean beef stew meat. This is definitely a keeper. Very healthy & low in calories. Yummy!!!
