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'!
My son had a baseball game last night, so dinner in the crockpot was a necessity. This is the first time I've made beef stew in the crockpot, everyone loved it. I didn't add mushrooms (we don't care for them) and I did add frozen corn and frozen green beans, other than that followed the recipe exactly. The house smelled wonderful when we came in. Thanks for a great recipe Narshmellow!
This would have to be by far and away the best crock pot beef stew i have ever tasted.... the only thing i did differently was left out the corn as my family doesnt like it that much.... so tasty and simple... thankyou!
This was sooooooo good the perfect beef stew. Thanks for sharing
