It was an ok stew
Great Stew. Make this often during winter. Only reason did give it 5 stars is because I have to alter it otherwise its too sweet for us. Only add 2 Tbls Hoisin sauce. Also add more veggies such as celery, a potato and mushrooms (mushrooms are a great addition).
Added a handful of mushrooms as one poster recommended along with reducing the amount of meat slightly. Simply amazing
Really good, wish the sauce was a little thinker but honestly it is really tasty and sweet without the taste of sugar. Great over mashed potatoes and I add some mushrooms to the sauce. Awesome!
Excellent stew, perfect for a cold weekend night! I followed the recipe exactly, and my husband and I were very pleased. Excellent with a crusty bread to mop up the sauce.
Wow! This was delicious! I tried this bcz I have a new bottle of hoisin. I only had 2.72 lbs meat and didn't have the tomatoes. It simmered down to very little sauce, but it was thick, just perfect. I would possibly double it next time and add another cup of wine. Mmmmm. Thanks for posting.
What a great stew! The hoisin sauce added an outstanding flavor. I threw about three times as many fresh herbs in, only cause I had to use em up and used the whole bottle of wine, and added beef broth to give time for the wine alcohol to cook off. Soooooo extremely good, especially with the cold weather we were having. Thanks very much!!!
Wanted to add one more thing for the game lovers out there: We tried this with venison and it was just as amazing as with beef.
Made this tonight since I was off and had extra time for a yummy meal on a cold night. It was FANTASTIC ! I followed the recipe almost exactly -but used a 3lb chuch roast that I cut up in pieces. Also used a port red wine ( on sale ) and added sliced mushrooms when I added the carrots. The sauce was absolutely delish !!! I will make this again and again. Served over egg noodles with a little butter... PERFECT 10 !
