We thought this was really good and had good flavor. I reduced the meat to 1 lb and took out the tomatoes, then added mushrooms and zuchini in the last 5 minutes of cooking. It could have used a bit more salt, but other than that we really really liked this! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4.

Yummy comfort food! I added mushrooms and red wine. I left out the potatoes but served this over mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.

I served it with Mamaliga and a good beef stew is something I always enjoy. Quite similar to the way I make it usually,I just don't like to thicken it. I let it boil without the lid on until it gets just the way I like it. Made for ZWT6.

Delicious! I left out the celery and used tomato paste since that was what I had on hand. I really liked having tender meat without mushy veggies :-)

Great stew! We were really in the mood for some good comfort food after making lots of different tour recipes. This was a huge hit at our house. I made this as directed and it was easy and good. Thanks mama for another good keeper. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks.

I added cabbage and broccoli and used cornstarch to thicken. Itis the perfect classic beef stew. I didn't know it was so easy. Thanks for the recipe.

Very yummy - I didn't cook for 3 hours as, well, we were hungry. Served with fresh crusty Italian bread. I'm eating the leftovers for lunch right now!
