L-O-V-E this recipe! This has become a favorite for us. We serve it over wide egg noodles. I do like to thicken it before serving. I triple the recipe when heading to a party. Everyone oohs and aahhs on this dish!

This had spectacular flavor! It was exactly the taste I was looking for. Thanks for introducing me to Hoisin sauce. It's the perfect ingredient for a special twist on regular old pot roast/stew.

I absolutely love the flavor of this stew. It is rich and satisfying. I add some small pasta and it takes it to a whole new level. Thanks for posting this. It is my go to beef roast recipe.

Didn't care 4 this at all. But, I will admit, MAYBE, just maybe I did something wrong. I am saying that because of the great reviews from others. Mine came out sweet :( IDK if that was due to the Hoisin sauce or because I used a fruity (sweet) red wine? Regardless, I won't be making again. :(

This is a really easy and wonderful stew. Like most stews, it was even better the next day. I didn't have quite a pound of carrots, so I added a chopped up potato. I'll be making this on a regular basis and will always have a container in the freezer for a quick, delicious meal.

We really didn't care for this at all, in fact we each had about a bowl and the rest is still sitting in our fridge waiting to be thrown out. I won't "rate" it since I did use the slow cooker, which is not really following directions so it's not fair to rate something I've deviated from. It was just too sweet and not very much flavor otherwise. Will definitely do a different recipe next time.

Good recipe, Definitely one I will do again. My family does not like their sauces really thick so I left out the cornstarch. But other then that, very good.
