This recipe was easy and very good! I will definitely make this again. I added beef broth and used italian seasoning instead of thyme. This is one of our favorites!

Disappointed in this stew. Way too much tomato taste. It tasted more like an italian dish with beef than an actual traditional beef stew. Maybe it needs beef broth or different seasonings... def...
