Harvest Beef Chuck Stew

"This is the best beef stew I've ever had. The cooking times are off because it's just best to let it cook all day. It works very well in the crockpot."

    We enjoyed this wonderful, hearty, stew. I made it exactly as it was written. The bay leaves and rosemary were just the right combination. The next layer of flavor came from the red wine. Thanks for posting this wondrful recipe. I will make it again.

    Turned out quite well for us but with a few adjustments. We browned the meat separately after a dusting of flour/seasoning. We used chopped fresh tomatoes instead of canned. We also used mushrooms (1 cup), more garlic and needed 3 cups of stock. Would definitely make this again (maybe with green beans instead of peas).

    This was very good. I used dried rosemary instead of fresh. I also forgot to put in the flour at the end. It wasn't runny; it was actually quite good without it! Yum!

    Very good! I made this in the crock pot, cooking it on high for 5-6 hours. I also used venison, and I added a can of cream of mushroom soup instead of the flour

    Superior flavor in this stew! Threw all of this in the crockpot (no sauteing) and very much enjoyed the result 6 hours later. Loved the herb combination. I skipped the thickening process and won't change another thing next time.

    After cooking all day in a crock pot I took out as much of the tomato sauce broth and put in 3 cups of water so the veggies would cook.
