OMG ! This was amazing. I made it in the crock pot, added a bunch of extra veggies - onion, celery, mushroom, potatoes. Believe the recipe, the hoisin sauce absolutely makes this dish. It was wonderful and am making it again a week later. Yummy

I cooked this in our slow cooker--just tossed everything in and let it cook all day and it turned out awesome! I didn't put the carrots in at the end as they wouldn't have time to cook in the slow cooker, but I did thicken the sauce with cornstarch as suggested. It was perfect. I served them with my parmesan cornmeal biscuits--my husband cut the biscuits and spooned the meaty sauce over them and seemed to enjoy it thoroughly. My daughter wasn't so sure about trying it, but once she did, she had to have another big hunk of meat. Thank you for a delicious, comforting meal on a chilly October night.

I threw all of the ingredients together in the crockpot, and it turned out fantastic. I only bought a pound of beef, so I substituted about 2 pounds of potatoes. We'll be eating this again.

This is hands down amazing. The hoisin definitely makes this dish, and you can't have it with out it. I made this every week for over a month last year when I first found the recipe. I'm looking forward to winter. I've been ready to make this dish again for nearly a year!

Delicious! We really enjoyed this stew. I followed the first 7 steps and then threw it all plus the other ingredients in a crock pot to cook for the day. I added potatoes, mushrooms and peas to the ingredients listed on the recipe. (I used two tablespoons cornstrach instead of one.) Thanks for sharing.

This was sooo good and easy to prepare. The only thing I changed was replacing the second cup of wine with a 15 oz can of Beef Broth and I used 3 cloves of Garlic. I think next time I will throw some potatoes in for the last hour of cooking. I served the Stew over mashed potatoes with some Biscuits on the side. Yum ****update !!! 1/4 cup of Hoisin is plenty for us! It was too sweet with the 1/2 cup.

THIS IS THE BEST so far for me. I never tried any beef stew recipe from this site until tonight. My husband and our friend loved it and we even have left over for tomorrow. I added extra can of italian stewed tomatoes(drained). I sprinkled the meat with flour, ground pepper, salt and browned them. I add extra garlic too. I simmered it for 30 mins and then put it in the crock pot for 8 hrs. on low. Didn't add the cornstarch and water. 3 hrs. before it was done I added 1 cup of sliced mushrooms and 1 cup of frozen peas. The hoisin sauce really add some good flavor. The meat was falling apart. Next time I will try to use a cooking red wine(Hollands) just to see the difference of flavor. I'll definetly cook this again.THANKS EVELYN.
