This was a great recipe. I love v-8 juice, so I knew when I saw the title that I would have to try this. I used the hot spicy v-8, so left off the hot pepper sauce, but other than that I didn't change a thing.

This is pretty much how I've been making beef stew for years. Very Good!

I always make my beef stew with V8, but a little differently~~thought I would try yours. I like the addition of marjoram & thyme. I did add the 1/2 tsp. of ground cloves that I usually do, try it! I used 2 lbs. of stew meat which we found was plenty, only 1 cup of celery (not a real fan) and a cup of frozen peas at the end. Loved it1

Oh my gosh, this is so good! Made this at the request of my son, and had planned on halving the recipe but at the last minute decided to make the entire recipe (and glad I did!), but had to sub a few things. Instead of the V8, water and bouillon granules called for, I used 24 oz V8 (one can regular, one can spicy), 3 cups beef broth, and 15 oz. tomato sauce. Also added 1 1/2 cups mushrooms cause I had some that needed to be used. Ate as is and loved it. My husband doesn't care for stew so I served his over rice which made him happy, too. Froze the leftovers and have been enjoying them ever since. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Excellant! I threw in 8 oz. of sour cream at the end, just before serving and I think my family elevated me to sainthood. Thanks for posting!!

I made this today and really liked it. Nice blend of flavors. I don't usually put potatoes over rice, but I did as you suggested and over rice it went. To my surprise, it was good enough to have for lunch and dinner too. Thanks for a very nice meal.

This is a delicious beef stew. I added some dried crushed red pepper flakes along with a few drops of Tabasco sauce, Worchestershire sauce and substituted savory for thyme, since I didn't have any. After browing the beef cubes, I placed it in a crockpot, turned it on high and let it cook all day. It is a warm, hearty meal and great on taste.

Magnifique!! With or without minor alterations, this is a great recipe that has made my guests want for more. The V-8 sauce is surprisingly good along with the hot sauce (which I have been generous with).

Very tasty, hearty stew! I added 1 pound fresh mushrooms and small bag of frozen peas with the celery, carrots and potatoes. Served over wide whole-wheat egg noodles for a warming, delicious dinner stew. Thanks for very good recipe!
