    acerast's Note:

    This is an adopted recipe. Please try it and give me your feed back. It looks delicious! (I prepared this and made a few notes below. It is a good basic beef stew to which cooks can add other things and make it their own - for example, I added thyme and frozen peas - acerast.)

      Looks like I am the first to review this recipe. It was delicious. I made it in a cast iron dutch oven and cooked it in the oven (300 deg) as I do alot of things (huge fan of cast iron). I did make double sauce as I added more potatoes and carrots than the recipe called for. Peas and thyme and a splash of red wine was also added. I did not add the green beans. I did not have to thicken the sauce as everything really cooked down just right in the cast iron. This is indeed a good basic beef stew recipe that can easily be adjusted to suit individual tastes. Thanks for posting. Tess #2, another Hoosier from your neck of the woods.
