Hearty Beef Stew
October 04, 2006

This is excellent!! I don't know why it only has 4 stars... I made a few changes however: I didn't use any celery but chopped up two potatoes into big pieces instead. Also, I used beef round steak b/c I had it on hand. BUT, I would actually do it again - since the round steak was a bit thin and already tenderized, little pieces of it "floated off" while cooking so every bite of the stew had beef in it. There were, of course, still big chunks throughout. Some people complained of a "sweet, funny taste" - I thought it tasted perfect. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and it was perfect. Trust the recipe, don't change anything except any vegetables you might like to take out or add.
