This is a good standard beef stew recipe but I thought it would have been better with a lot fewer tomatoes maybe even less than half of what the recipe calls for. Read More

I made this for the first time almost 2 years ago and it is now a staple meal in our home. I too made a change or two but one change was pure accident. The only canned tomatoes I had were the diced Red Gold with Green Chilies. The chilies give this stew just enough of a zip putting it ahead of all others. Read More

The cook times on this recipe seemed to be quite odd as the vegetables needed more then even an hour. The flavor was very good the texture was a little thinner then we like so I mixed a little flour with the juice and added to soup to thicken. Really Enjoyed on this cold winters night! Read More

This recipe delivers an excellent flavor but I might call it beef soup. It could have easily been thickened by adding flour or whatever but it tasted so good we ate it as it was. I didn't have Worcestershire sauce so I used two cups of boiling Swanson's beef broth. I also added 4-5 stalks chopped celery. Read More
