Added: Used dry onion soup mix (instead of onion) 1/4 - 1/2 c dry red wine; 1 tsp. thyme; sliced fresh mushrooms; 1 tsp better than bullion beef base in 1 c boiling water; 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce; thickened with some of the sauce and corn starch *used cream of mushroom soup with garlic; Served over mashed potatoes Read More

Made this today. Probably won't get 6 servings out of it. All in all, it was very good. About the only changes I made were, I browned the beef cubes before dumping them into the crock and I was afraid that it was going to be too dry so, I added a 480ml container of beef broth. In hindsight, I most likely didn't need to add the broth, as there seems to be a lot of liquid left over, but, I notice that another poster also added beef broth. Actually, I intend to freeze the leftover liquid and use as gravy? some other time. Will most definitely be making this again. Read More

I made this yesterday, it was the best beef stew ever!!!! I added 32 oz of beef broth, and added a whole 15oz can of tomato sauce, because I didn't want to waste it. I put in some celery also. I used the beefy onion soup mix, because that is what I had. I cooked it for 4 hrs. on high! Everyone loved it! Added alittle water with some corn starch for thickening, because of the extra liquid & it came out perfect! Today, I added more potatoes & carrots and we finished it today! Will make this recipe a go to one for Beef Stew!!!! Read More

I really like this recipe - it is a great base stew and not too soupy - which is very important in our house. Based on other reviews and feedback from my family, I have modified it over time to the following: I brown the meat and substitute celery for the onion (I keep the onion soup mix). I use a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, add 2 tablespoons worchestershire sauce and 1 beef boullion dissolved in 1 cup boiling water. Enjoy! Read More

I made this today for dinner. Easy and yummy! It only took me about 30 minutes prep time. I browned the stew meat (about 3 lbs) prior to adding it to the slow cooker. I also altered the recipe by adding mushrooms a rutabaga about a tablespoon of worchestershire and approx. 1/3 c. red wine 1/3 c. beef broth and about 1/2 c. of beef gravy. The original recipe broth to meat and vegetable ratio was good but since I added ingredients I wanted to increase the broth. I liked my additions. Very yummy. I will make this again soon. I'm sure the recipe would have been great as is. I think the cream of mushroom soup tomato sauce and onion soup mix are a winning combination. Thank you!!! Read More

Made this tonight. It turned out great! Really easy to throw together took about 20 mins. Cooked on high for 4.5 hours on high. This is too easy not to make again! Added mushrooms and celery and cut back on the carrots too. Just our personal preference. Read More
