I was short on time and needed a quick and easy dinner. This was delicious. I did add a package of onion soup mix, basil and garlic for some added flavor. Will make again!
Made this last night for my husband who was feeling a little sick. He loved it and so did my 4 year old son. I used beef stew meat instead of sirlion so i simmered it for 2 hours to make sure the meat was tender. I also added a bay leaf. The stew had a nice, mellow comforting flavor. We will definitely make this again this winter. Thanks!
I have to say, after our 15yo son decided this for us for dinner. It was very good. He only added instead frozen mixed veggies. (corn, carrots, green beans) and it came out great. Thank you
Thank you, I made this tonight. Very Good! I have never made stew so fast and the meat and vegetables were DONE! I only had one can of beef broth, substituted a can of diced tomatoes and a can of water.
This recipe is great! I made some changes and now make this all the time ? a perfect substitution for long crock pot recipes. <br/><br/>Instead of the liquid it calls for I use V8 - yes, the vegetable juice. It is a great substitute that adds a nice tomato base to this. I also added quite a bit of fresh rosemary, which gave it a great flavor. The V8 is pretty thick already, so I didn't add the flour to the vegetables it called for. <br/><br/>I let this stew simmer for about an hour before I served it. It was delicious!
The Polar Vortex made me want to make stew! I didn't feel like fussing too much. Made it as stated but added 2 bay leaves and some red wine that I had left over.
I do not cook anything that does not come out of a box... but I managed to make this, even needing to sub out some things. With a family member being in the hospital I have suddenly needed to cook for the family. I didn't have any beef, but lucky for me I live at a deer processing. So I used venison instead of beef. No stock either so I used water and added onion soup mix. HOME RUN!!!
Terrific quick weeknight meal that does not take tons of effort. I doubled this recipe and it worked like a gem. I cubed my beef into smaller bite size pieces so it would be easier to get it tender without it being such large chunks. On the table within 45 minutes start to finish. I did find the broth still a bit runny (might be because of the doubling) so used a cornstarch mixture to thicken it a bit. Everyone loved it but wished it had a bit more zip - so next time I'll use more pepper and maybe even a pepper grinder that includes some garlic. No need for salt with the broth so skipped on that. Overall a great weeknight meal that fills our tummies and does not wipe out my wallet or timeclock. Thanks!
I tried this recipe because it was fast. I had stew beef but couldn't wait for 2hours to cook it. The recipe was great! I added in some garlic, as another here suggested, and used A1 instead of Worcestershire Sauce because there wasn't any. I also added a couple of tablespoons of tapioca to thicken it at the very end. I served it over rice and it was delicious. The meat was soft enough too. It took longer to cook everything than expected but only another 15 minutes. I will definitely try this again.
