I've been making my beef stew exactly like this with the McCormick seasoning package and these exact ingredients and measurements forever.(It must be the recipe on the package). I always brown the floured meat before adding it to the slow cooker and I use low sodium beef broth in place of the water. Sometimes I make this in my pressure cooker too. It's the best beef stew I've ever had. Read More

I thought the recipe was very good but I added squash, barley,corn to it. And when I was done I made a small amount of roux to thicken it. It turned out yummy but the main thing I did was let it cook all day. My family now let's me cook more often ;) Read More

I thought this had a good flavor. After 7 hours on low, the broth looked very thin. I normally saute, or brown, the beef first. I never just throw it in the crock pot. This left a lot of impurities in the broth. So, after 7 hours I removed the meat and vegetable and strained the liquid. I thickened the liquid with a little cornstarch slurry and then added it back to the pot with the meat and vegetables. I put it back on low for 2~3 more hours. The broth was still a little thinner than what I would expect from a stew. I seasoned with garlic and onion powder, dried oregano, and a sprinkle of Adobo seasoning. That gave it good flavor. I used 1/2 pack beef stew from the whole sale club. I weighed it and it was 2lbs. The pieces were about 2", so I chopped the larger vegetables that size. I suggest that with the length of cooking time. I did 2 cups of halved colored potatoes. I got about 6 servings. ty Read More

I just made this and was very disappointed with the results. The meat was bland and didn't taste the seasoning. I followed the directions and browned the beef first and added it to the mixture. I cooked it 5 hours on high. I found it to be very soupy. I won't be making this again, but I would recommend either longer cooking time or less liquid. Read More

I made this just as stated except for adding some garlic salt and pepper. It still could have used a little more seasoning, but other than that, it was tender and had a nice base, not too thin. It was so easy, I will definitely make again. Read More

This recipe is delicious! Best beef stew I've ever had. I took the advice of some other reviewers and browned the beef before adding to the slow cooker. I also don't care for celery so I omitted that but added about 1 cup each of canned green beans and sliced mushrooms 1 hour before the stew was done cooking. It came out perfect!! Read More
