    Narshmellow's Note:

    I love beef stew. I am not fond of canned stew and have read many recipes and finally just took a little from one and a little from another and just added the things I like. This one my family loved so it's a keeper!

      Wonderful! What more can I say. I followed the recipe exactly. I did double it - it almost didn't fit in my huge crock pot! I doubled it with the intention of freezing half. No such luck. My family saw to it that there was none left for freezing!

      I didn't pre-cook my potatoes, grate the onion, or add corn. I subbed in fresh baby portobellos, a few chopped carrots, and a few tbsp. of Italian seasoning blend as my spice. For liquid, I used half broth and half dark beer. I was looking for a great basic recipe that allows for customization, and I think this is it! Super hit with a baked loaf the first day, and even better over egg noodles the second. Thanks, Sheri!

      Except for the mushrooms, I followed this recipe exactly, and found this an agreeable, great-smelling, easy, "comforty" stew. DH & I agreed not to 5-star it, though, just because we thought it wasn't something we'd find in a restaurant or something we'd make for company. But it's still good home-cookin'!
