Very good! I made it exactly as written and it was warm, filling, rich and tasty. I didn't need to thicken it up at all. The only comment I recieved was that it would be even better with more meat in it. I thought it was meaty enough however and I enjoyed all the veggies. Thanks Inez!

This is a very good Beef Stew. I made a few adjustments: added only 1/4 teaspoon salt, and added 3 teaspoons Better Bouillon, beef flavor. It came out great, and I will definitely make it again when I want beef stew.

You have another winner here MizzNezz. Wonderful stew,great taste. The only thing different I did was add half water and half beef broth and I slow cooked it in the oven just cause it was easier. Thanks, this is a keeper. Jan
