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!
Really good stew. Even better on Day 2. Next time I will add mushrooms and use only about 2/3 the hoisin sauce. I did use a bit more garlic and added it in with the onions. Tastes strangely like Niku Jaga, the Japanese beef stew, #42722 on Zaar.
Great stew. I made half a recipe and it was perfect for the two of us with a little left over.
I followed another person's suggestion and made this in the crock pot. I just put all of the ingredients in at the beginning and then added the cornstarch at the end....I did use 2 tablespoons. We thought that this would have been 5 stars, but we said it was a 4 because it was a bit too sweet and not enough salt. Next time I will leave out a bit of the hoisin sauce and see if this helps. Thanks for sharing and we will be making this again!
Really great stuff, although I doctored it up a bit as others have. I added 2 large Idaho potatoes, 3 large carrots and about 3-4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce, along with 2 cans of beef broth (no water.) It was delicious. Thanks, Evelyn. Your recipes never let me down!
