    Mille®'s Note:

    I like this stew because the potatoes are not part of the stew, but served on the side instead.

      I'm with you Miller - I love mashed potatoes on the side with all that good gravy! Since I was cooking for 2, I cut the recipe in half - otherwise I followed the directions exactly. I must admit that I was a little skeptical about the coffee, but the flavour was awesome & the beef was fork tender. My husband said that it was the kind of stew that he would just keep eating as long as I kept putting more on his plate!! Thanx for posting.
