Made it exactly according to recipe, and loved it! The suggested cooking time needs to be less, though, if you don't like your veggies too limp. Will definitely make it again!
I followed all the instructions true to the recipe except that I tried it with a few boneless, skinless breasts as well as a few thighs. I also cooked them for a half hour uncovered, then another hour covered, and they all were excellent! Juicy and very tender. Great recipe!
I followed the recipe exactly, with one exception: since I have a Ninja System, I used the "stovetop" setting to brown the meat first, then switched it over to the "slow cook" setting and set it on low for 10 hours. The stew was absolutely amazing, meat super tender, and full of flavor! This is how I will cook beef stew all the time from now on!
Followed reviewers recommendations, and doubled the sauce ingredients. Also added broccoli florets, and used milk instead of water. Served with angel hair pasta. This quick, simple dish received rave reviews from everyone in our house!
Excellent as is, especially if you have some of the ingredients in your summer garden. Next time, I will try adding shrimp, too.
