I modified this recipe quite a bit.I substituted 2 cans of Swanson beef broth, added a few more cloves of garlic, 12 oz of sliced fresh mushrooms, and a bag of peas. Very tasty.

I really thought this lacked flavour. I personally prefer more the regular gravy type stew. I have had stews with tomatoes before that I do like but not this one.

This was a very good and easy recipe- i think I made about 10 servings for $25---how cool is that? Now for my tweaks- I think I doubled the celery- and added some canned whole, and another can o...

Great recipes. The only change I made was the beef. I've always found stew meat to be stringy and lacking in flavor. I use a chuck roast (or whatever roast is on sale), cube and use as "stew mea...

This recipe is delicious! Prep time takes a lot longer than 15 minutes though, with all the vegetables to prepare. I found that it took longer than 20 minutes for the vegetables to cook too, but...

I tweaked this recipe a little too. I did not add the celery until the last 15 minutes cooking, I like the little crunch in the stew. Also, I added (3) chopped oven roasted Anaheim Chili's, at s...

It was ok, but definitely not the best I've ever had. I agree that the veggies should be cubed, not "chopped". It's my belief that a stew should be chunky. I added quartered button mushrooms ...

Great flavor! Wife couldn't stop raving about it. Kept thanking me for a great dinner. Next day it was the same. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is the prep time is way off and so is the cook ...

This is the best beef stew I have made, my family loves it. I used rotel type diced tomatoes with peppers to add some heat and beef broth instead of the bouillon and water. Delicious.
