    Mommy Diva's Note:

    Just a silly twist on beef stew I threw together. All depends on your personal taste what you like to add in. These are ours. ;) I find that it just gets better the longer it cooks - and that you can sort of use the cooking times as "guidelines". Sometimes I start out the night before while making another quick meal (I made it during my Family Pleasing Chicken Paprika) and let it go slowly over night for the next evening's meal - the picture I posted is from that. ***Note: (I tend to be heavy handed when I shake or pour spices so measurements are approx. go by your own tastes)

      One word ~ "DELICIOUS"!!! Made as written with a couple of adjustments, I seasoned the stew meat with Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning (salt free) then browned without the flour, only used 32 ounces of beef broth and about 1 1/2 cups red wine, cooked on high for the first hour then switched to low for 5 hours, after adding the pearl onions and button mushrooms in place of peas, switched back to high for the last 2 hours, I thickened the sauce with a cornstarch slurry mixed with a teaspoon of Gravy Master. Perfect beef stew so tender and flavorful! Thanks for sharing the fabulous recipe. Made for Mommy Diva's Cook-A-Thon 2012 ~ Fight Like a Girl!

      Mmmmm, very nice! I used regular gravy mix and brown onions because I couldn't get either of the listed varieties locally. Only other change I made was using around a tablespoon of cornstarch because I like stews fairly thick and it made a great one-dish meal.

      Excellent! I used beef chuck pot roast I used all of the ingredients as written except i used Tony Cachere's Cajun spice mix rather than the brown gravy mix. I made this in a clay pot and cooked it in the oven. The pearl onions were something that i have never cooked with and i used them here-- loved them. This recipe is a keeper and i will make it again.
