I guess it must have been me not liking red wine that made me think this was the most disgusting meal I've eaten in a long time. My husband who loves red wine did like it so at least it didn't go to waste! So if you're not a red wine drinker I would not recommend this stew.
Really very rich meal. I changed the number of servings (I think to 2) and it was so rich that we had leftovers for another night. I did also add cubed red potatoes to the recipe. Very good, but very rich.
I hadn't made beef stew in several years due to tiring of the same old taste. When I read the ingredients in this recipe, I knew I had to try it. . .so glad that I did! DH and I both loved it. I used an Australian Shiraz that convenienty came in a carton that was about 2 cups. I like to call this "Beef Stew with Pizzazz." Thanks so much for this unique recipe.
I found this recipe to be okay--not fantastic. I cooked it in the crockpot and ended up adding some salt and brown sugar at the end which improved the flavor somewhat. Maybe my red wine wasn't high-quality enough (?) Probably not a recipe I'll be trying again.
Fantastic! I threw everything in the crock pot and it was great! Thanks so much!
It was not at all tender after 2 hours of cooking it. The sauce tasted a bit weird but my family loves it so 2 stars only.
This is the best beef stew I have ever made! Thank you so much for posting this recipe it is now my go to meal when we have company.
Oh MY!!! While my hubby was making this, we realized that we only had 2 TBSP of Hoisin, so we added oyster sauce and molasses and ended up with THE MOST AMAZING Stew either of us had ever eaten---it was so rich, full of flavor and warming on a cold November night! Thank you Evelyn for such a fantastic recipe!
Wonderfully flavorful stew! I've had stews with coffee, chili sauce, beer etc, but never tried it with hoisin sauce. It's a fantastic addition! Thanks for posting :-) !!
We really liked this. I made it last night, put in the refrigerator and had it tonight for dinner. I think the overnight stay in the refrigerator only enhanced the deliciousness. I didn't add any cornstarch, and served it over egg noodles. Thank you, Evelyn!
