"This was an excellant recipe. My son made it by himself he sauted garlicin the beginning and added tomatoes & bell pepper towards the end. Yummy."
"Excellent Recipe!! I want to thank you for this recipe, I cook every day for my family and this Beef Stew is so easy to make and not only that but, it taste so good! We all enjoyed this and the texture of this beef stew is perfect. Thanks again and keep it coming. Just love it! The Carreon's Family*****"
"One of the best stews I've eaten in a long time... Varied the recipe a little by using Beef Stock instead of water (towards the end I added more water anyway), increased the Worcestershire sauce to 4 Tbsp, and put the Peppers and Onions in a food processor first. Also increased the #'s of Potato's and Carrots for my kids. And this cooked for 5 hours in a roaster at 350 degrees (didn't have a dutch oven...)."
"This was wonderful ! So easy to make ! I had to make it for a heap of people, so I added a couple of things off a whim. I tin of tomato puree...2 more tbsps of worcestershire sauce, 4 tbsps more of flour. 2 cups more of water. 2 tbsps of pesto...a few italian herbs and a bit more pepper and salt. It's a very versatile stew....take or add...... will be in my favourite recipe file forevever....love it SUGARDOLL !!!!! THANKS !!!!!"
"ps.--forgot to mention I did this in the crockpot (browned the meat in a skillet beforehand) and instead of the flour/water technique, i just threw about 3/4 c. instant mashed potatoes in to thicken the gravy."
"Very good and easy. I added a tablespoon of beef base to the water, and next time will add two, as I still needed to add salt at the end. Next time I will also add more Worcestershire and more pepper as it could use a bit more flavor, but I didn't want to make too many adjustments the first time. The meat melts in your mouth, and I will definitely make this again and again. "
"We made this the other day in the crockpot. I browned the beef first, then put it in the crockpot with the water and seasonings for about four hours. I added the last ingredients about 2 hours before dinner. It was excellent! I wasn't sure about the green bell peppers, but they really added a lot to the taste. Definately will make again. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is great stew. I am rating it because I made some changes and I don't want to forget for next time I make it. Instead of 4 cups water I used 6 cups water and 6 beef bullion cubes. Also I added a teaspoon of Parsley, a teaspoon of thyme, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper. My whole family devoured it!"
"I made this for our New Year's Eve potluck; it was supposed to warm us up after sledding but that idea was scrapped due to the warm weather here in Ottawa. I used 1.5 lbs. stew meat and tossed with doubled amount of flour pepper salt and browned in oil in three batches. After each batch, I cooked the scraps off the bottom of the frying pan with store bought beef broth. I put potatoes and carrots (doubled amounts) in the bottom of my slow cooker, added the beef as it was browned and poured the scraps/broth over top. I combined the garlic, Worcestershire sauce and remaining broth to fill my large slow cooker to 2 inches from the top. I added a small onion and 1 tsp. basil. Cooked on high 1 hour and on low 7 hours. It was very tender and a big hit. Thanks!"
"The hardest part of this recipe is having to smell it for 2 1/2 hours before it was ready. It smelled WONDERFUL. Sometimes dishes smell better than they turn out. Not this one. It tasted as wonderful as it smelled. This recipe takes a while to cook but it was worth the wait. Great weekend dish."
"Very nice basic stew. Thank you."
"This. was. AMAZING!! I didnt have the green pepper but added all other ingredients. Added rosemary and cellery seed in a difuser ball. And when dredging meat mixed salt pepper and flour."
"great recipe because it was sooo easy and tasty!!!! thank you!!!"
"Really good and easy. :)"
"This made a fantastic stew, though I didn't measure any ingredients. I'm taking away a star, though, because I had to add spices to taste (thyme and a rosemary/garlic blend)."
"This tastes exactly like the stew that my parents used to make growing up that I never liked. I didn't mind it now but I did think it was missing herbs and I did need to add alot more flour to thicken it or it would have been more of a soup."
"We made this for dinner tonight. I used about 1.5lb stew meat and increased the Worcestershire. It turned out pretty good, although it seemed like it was missing something for our tastes. Next time I may try subbing low sodium beef broth for some of the water as previous reviewers suggested. We look forward to enjoying the leftovers tomorrow. Thanks for posting!!!"
"Couldn't get enough!"
"Thanks for the recipe-- this turned out great! I used about a pound and a half of beef, a bit more oil, 5 carrots instead of 4, 3 medium russet potatoes and no bell peppers... I added salt (maybe 1.5 TB?) and added more water right before serving... it was a huge hit!"
"This is great beef stew! Just made half a recipe only had 1 lb of stew beef. I used cornstarch instead of the flour, beef broth instead of the water and added Old Bay seasoning to the other seasonings. i had no bell peppers in but i did have some parsnips which I added with some diced tomato. Ended up with a lovely flavourful stew that we had been longing to have. The whole hose was filled with a very inviting arouma while it cooked, lovely tender beef too! Thanks for posting, I will make this again, next time with the bell peppers."
