My family loves this recipe and it is so easy! I usually throw all of the ingredients in the crock pot and walk away.

This dish was great! I added a bag of frozen veggies to it so it would be more then just meat and potatoes. I also cooked it longer for more flavor. Very good!

This is one of my favorite beef stews. That curry adds an exotic zing! I love the flavor and nutrient value of swapping out the white potatoes for all sweet potatoes or a mix of sweet potatoes and turnips (equals more nutrients and lower glycemic effect than white potatoes). As another reviewer suggested I also like to add a thickner for that real stew quality. (Personally I always prefer using white or even better whole wheat pastry flour for my thickner to lower the glycemic effect - something even us non-diabetics benefit from health wise. Of course whenever one uses wheat flour compared to cornstarch you must take some liquid out add it to the flour and then add the mixture to the stew.)

My wife suprised me with this dish. It was wonderful. Only thing she did different was she added cornstarch to thicken it. She wanted a beef curry dish not soup. It still turned out lovely

Yummy! I followed the recipe except like others I added some cornstarch to thicken it and I also added some veggies (carrots and celery). I accidentally let it simmer too long so a lot of the liquid evaporated but it was still delicious! This is a recipe that can be easily adapted to each persons taste depending how strong you like it or what veggies you want in it. Would porbably be good with chicken or pork instead of the beef too.

This recipe was easy to follow used simple ingredients and tasted delicious! I added half a bag of frozen California Blend vegetables(carrots broccoli and cauliflower) about ten minutes after I added the potatoes. I served it over a scoop of rice in a bowl. It was great!

This did not turn out well for us. I did cook it in the crock pot instead of on the stove but other than that I followed the ingredients exactly. I did not enjoy the flavor. I usually have great success with AllRecipes. Sorry!

This is now my favorite soup ever! I make fresh French bread to dip in it and it is AMAZING! I cook it for about an hour and then add potatoes and carrots for the last 30 minutes. Absolutly a keeper!
