Great basic recipe. We liked the lower fat content using the evaporated milk. Added a touch of worchester sauce and an extra can of evap milk because I had a can that was about read to expire. Husband added a drop of hot sauce but he likes things spicer. I will make again. Read More

Great on a cold rainy day. I made a few changes--just a few carrots chicken boullion added a little sherry 1 shallot for onion. No extra salt or pepper due to salt in bullion cubes. Came out perfect! Read More

Such a different year. Usually would spend at friends Christmas Eve party. Tonight it was only my son and me and I remembered my daddy made oyster stew on Christmas Eve. This wasn’t his recipe but I followed it to the letter. Excellent! Dad would be proud. Thank you!! Read More

Good dish. I doubled the recipe but instead of 16 oz of oysters I used 8 oz of oysters and 10 oz of baby clams. Read More

I loved this. It's really good. The problem I have is purchasing good quality oysters without the "bad stuff" in canned oysters. I think I'll spend a little extra and buy fresh oysters next time. I like oysters from Maine or from the NE of US. Read More

DELICIOUS! I like oyster stew but have always had the basic oysters milk butter recipe. The veggies and canned milk kick it up to great. Our butcher shop had fresh oysters on sale so I used those instead of canned. My one mistake was getting the large oysters. Small would be better for stew. Read More
