I currently have a cold so had to rely on hubby's taste buds for this rating, He rates 4 stars, it made a lovely filling & thick stew and cooked up lovely in a cast iron pot on a pot belly stove. Thanks for posting!

This was such a hearty and filling dish! Super easy, and super tasty -how can you go wrong? I just added a tsp of salt before switching on the slow cooker and otherwise copied as is. My husband came home to a decadent smelling house and said he gave it a 10. This one is going into my file! :-) Thanks for posting!

This was good! Even the kids ate it. We served over crackers with a little shredded cheddar on top. Yum. And EASY!

This is a nice thick stew. I made this yesterday and we all enjoyed it for dinner. There was just a little broth left in the bottom of the crockpot after the barley was done cooking. It was so rich in the flavors of the stew. After searing the meat I deglazed the pan with the beef broth. I did not want to lose any of that extra flavor. I used 8 ounces of frozen green beans not canned. I thought since a can holds about 7 ounces of liquid, why not just use frozen then. I was glad I made that change but I'll put 12 ounces in next time. Cabernet Sauvignon was the wine I used. Thank you for a VERY good recipe! Made for *Beverage Tag* game 2008
