Thanks to the reviewers' comments and the instructions about adding "1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch... " it was pretty easy to see this was soup not stew. So I made simple changes: use chicken broth not water for flavor. Use 2 cups not 4 to prevent soupiness. Use low sodium broth to prevent saltiness. Add 1 simple pat of butter on top to add richness and prevent sticking (when it reduces and gets thicker). Problems solved -- basic and pretty yummy.
This was OK but not as good as mine I use beef broth (not water)I would add a can of diced tomatoes and flour & brown the meat first for thickening I don't think it calls for corn. just carrots celery could add green beans and peas Joyce
Hi I put this together this morning in the crockpot for our dinner. About 1/2 hour before it was done I put bisquick dumplings on top. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal. The flavor was great. Had plenty left over to freeze. A fantastic crockpot recipe. Sincerely Judy
This was good but I did make a few changes. I used 2 cans beef broth and 2 cups of water instead of 4 cups water. I also added a package of au jus gravy mix. This was delicious with the changes; however it did make it overly salty. Between the broth and the gravy mix I think the salt can be omitted completely.
I absolutely loved this recipe and so did my family and friends so I am making it again today. I followed some other peoples advice and added 2 cup low-sodium beef broth and 1 cup of water instead of the 4 cups of water and also added 1 tbsp of cornstarch.
YUM! I like the flavor of the 'broth' part...of course I added a little extra of all the spices and it is really nice. My family likes a thick stew so I dredged the beef in flour and browned it and added some corn starch toward the end. OH! And I was short on time so I made this on the stove instead of the slow cooker. Used half the meat...I really love how the allspice/Worcestershire/sugar/salt/bay leaf flavors the stew!
This was just okay. It had plenty of veggies and the meat was tender. The only thing that it could have used was thickness. My family thinks stews should be more creamier. I didn't realize this until it was to late.
