      Cooking Directions are Flawed. When does a person add all the other items in the list of ingredients? How could you forget to include in the Directions when to add all of the ingredients? I had to guess when to add: Beef Bouillon; Dried Oregano; Tomato Sauce, and Bay Leaves. Really Bad Job with the Directions. I hope the Stew comes out right, I have 2 hours to wait. And hopefully I added the above items when I was supposed to!
