Mmmmm! I made this tonite for a get-together with another couple. Our infant daughters even loved it! I used carrots, parnips, sweet potatoes and a butternut squash. I adjusted the recipe to use 6 cups of vegetables and we still only had 1 serving left over after we were all done, so I would say double what you think you'll need. The veggies cooked up nicely and we used apple juice instead of wine and I would definitely say that you do not need to add sugar. It had great flavor and everyone loved it! Read More

This was actually pretty incredible. Everything I used was organic, from the meat to the vegetables. I used carrots, sweet potato, and butternut squash. The only thing I did differently is add way more spices since I know I prefer a punchier palette and used cubed beef stew meat instead of sirloin. Super comforting and super filling. LOVED IT.

During preparation we decided that the vinegar taste was a little too much for the teenagers, we cut the flavor by adding some sugar and more chicken broth. They devoured the stew, taking second and third helpings. In retrospect I wonder if we should have used the apple juice instead of dry red wine. Read More

Yummm!! I didn't bother with the wine (I'm sure it would be fantastic with it) and used homemade chicken stock I had lying around the freezer. I used carrots, parsnips, sweet potato and baby potatoes and didn't bother with the mashed potatoes, it tured out great! 10/10 will cook again. Read More

Overall I liked this recipe but the meat came out pretty tough. I used stir-fry sirloin cut up small, and also added green beans for color and crunch towards the end. The broth over mashed potatoes was delicious! Read More

I didn't like it and probably won't make again. The "gravy" was very thin and the meat came out tough. I had to come back and see if I missed an ingredient but I didn't. Read More
