I cut this recipe in half for my family. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt as I was afraid with the V8, salt and garlic salt- it would be too salty. I also cut the salt and pepper by half. I didn't have any savory but followed the rest of the recipe as written. This was good and easy to make. It was something different for us. I didn't add the cornstarch as my broth thicken up without it. I also didn't add the poppy seeds or slivered almonds but did mix it with egg noodles.
A very tasty stew and very easy to make! I cut back a little on the dill because of previous comments, but next time I will add the full amount because I didn't notice anything I didn't like. Very yummy.
This was sensational! And I have good news for all the other time-crunched (or just plain lazy) cooks out there - browning the meat is not necessary! Since standing over a stove at 7:30 in the morning is the last thing I want to do, I just dumped the meat (still partially frozen) into the cooker with the other ingredients. I cooked it on low for 9 hours. Then I added some peas and carrots with the cornstarch and turned it to high for an hour. The sauce thickened up nicely and, served over rice, I had a complete meal in a bowl with very minimal work. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks!
We really liked this. It was wonderfully rich and savory. Thank you for sharing.
The flavor of this was unlike anything I have had before. I have never thought of putting dill in a stew. I think it turned out good. I used Venison meat added half of a chopped onion and 2 cloves of garlic to mine. I sereved over no yolk noodles, didn't add the seeds or nuts to mine. My husband enjoyed it a lot. Thanks for the idea!
After seeing picture had to make it last night. Excellent, didn't do almonds. Can't wait for leftovers. Thanks for posting.
Excellent Winter recipe. I will probably reduce the dill to 1 tsp as my husband didn't care for that flavor but everything else was perfect. I needed to cook my meat about 4 hours. Delicious over the noodles. Plan to make this often!
