I'm giving this recipe 5-stars based on flavor alone, although there is a problem with the recipe itself as it doesn't say what to do with the potatoes and carrots. I decided to make it in a slow cooker so I didn't have to babysit it. I placed the chopped potatoes and carrots in the bottom while the beef was browning on the stove-top. Then I added the beef stock, the beef cubes and the rest of the ingredients. I also added a 1/4 cup of sherry. I cooked it for 8-hours on low. Yummy! Made for Potluck tag 2010.
