"No, it doesn't have vodka. But you could either drink while you're cooking (good choice!), or drink while you're eating (good choice!). Whatever you decide to do, I'm sure you'll love it paired with this spicy beef stew. Soak up the rich and spicy juices with sourdough or crusty french bread. *If you don't want it as spicy, swap out the Bloody Mary mix with equal amounts of tomato juice (V8 would work well). Or go 50/50 with tomato juice and mix. Or use tomato juice and hot sauce to your liking. Try your favorite Bloody Mary mix; the kind we had is "Bold and Spicy."* (I adapted this from a Better Homes and Gardens recipe)"

"We really liked this one! I too used the "Bold & Spicy" mix. I doubled the recipe and cooked everything but the vegetables in the slow cooker on high for three hours. Then I added 3/4 of a pound of brown crimini mushrooms and a green pepper along with the other vegetables and cooked it another three hours. It was the best beef stew we have had in a while! Thanks Jusme!"
