Rated as 3.86 out of 5 Stars

"This beef stew always has people asking for the recipe. It is thick and heavy on the onion, as that is what my family likes. As I am lazy, I do not brown the beef before sticking in the slow cooker."

Everything was cooked perfectly. Good base recipe, but I think next time I'll use roast instead of ground beef, and forgo the thyme. There was a flavor I didn't care for, and I think that was it.

I wanted to try a new stew recipe, but this recipe was not for me or my family. Too salty, too much like gravy

A very nice change from the usual crockpot stews I make. I did fry the ground beef with the onions prior to putting in the crockpot as I truly believe the flavor is enhanced. Also added a coup...

Turned out rather salty. I didn’t mind but the parents weren’t thrilled.

This stew was fantastic! Instead of using ground beef I used cubed stewing beef instead and just threw it all in. Definitely making again and again

It took me about 5 minutes to prepare before work and it turned out amazing. The sweet potatoes mushed which made a great soup base while all of other veggies stayed in tact. The kids LOVED it...

Surprisingly good. I didn't have parsnips. it turned out OK anyway.
