This is great to have ready when you come home from a long day. The beef is tender and mouth-watering.

I really liked the basic flavors of this stew and the meat was as tender as could be. It might have been my cooker but I had a problem with the last step. In the 30 mins alloted, the corn and peas did defrost but they weren't really cooked and the gravy never thickened. It was already 6:30 and I had some guys wanting to eat so we had very tasty veggie beef soup which, honestly, I didn't mind at all :D
