    This was fantastic! I used 2.25 lb meat, increased the garlic and worcestershire sauce, chopped onion and fresh parsley. My crock pot was filled to the brim. I would make this again in a heart beat! Thanks!

    This is one of the best slow-cooker recipes I have made, I made this in a crockpot, next time I will double the recipe and will try it on top of the stove, I increased the wine to 1/2 cup, and also incresed the garlic to about 3 tablespoons, I love the addition of cabbage in this stew, what a great recipe Parsley, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)

    I only gave 4 stars as I modified the recipe base on my cupboard/family preferences. Very delicious- I used cream of mushroom soup (condensed) instead of gravy; no wine on hand; omitted celery and cabbage; added pasta shells last hour of cooking on "high" as it needed thickening and I did not want to use corn starch. A keeper-thanks!

    This was very tasty. I halved the recipe but used the full amount of gravy and red wine. I added corn starch dissolved in water at the end to thicken it up. Oh yeah, and I left out the cabbage- it was one ingredient that scared my boyfriend. I think I'll add it in next time. :)

    Had all the ingredients for 1/2 recipe yesterday, to go in the crockpot. Since I will be having surgery late this week, figured we could have 1 meal and freeze another, for when I didn't feel like cooking. It is a nice, basic beef stew recipe - where you could add almost any favorite ingredient or spice. I used the entire can of gravy and ALL the potatoes, and had a nice saucy stew and plenty left for another meal. There was a slight sweetness, maybe the cabbage or thyme, but it was not intrusive. Thanks for posting, *Parsley*. Janey

    Absolutely delicious! I halved the recipe, because my crock pot is little. I also made the following changes, for cost/family allergy reasons: 1 chopped onion instead of pearl onions, omitted peas (daughter allergic), used 2 c. gluten-free beef stock instead of beef gravy, omitted wine, used dried parsley instead of fresh (1 tblsp. for half recipe). I thickened the stew toward the end of cooking with corn starch mixed with cold water (then turned it up to high and let it simmer a bit). Everyone loves this dinner - fabulous!

    Great stew! I substituted a small onion for the pearl onion and used 1 cup of beef broth and 1 cup of brown gravy (from mix) instead of the can of gravy. This stew tastes fantastic! And so easy! Thanks for posting the recipe!
