Quick easy and wonderfully flexible recipe! I followed advice of previous reviewers and cut amounts on both broth and beer and the consistency came out just right. Also added flour (cut out salt plenty in broth and tomato sauce/paste) and spice (added curry my favorite-- See spicy slow-cooker beef stew w/ curry...Mmmm!!) all together in plastic bag and shook to coat. Might leave out the cabbage next time but it was fine. Thanks for a cold weather keeper!! Read More

I was a little disappointed with this recipe especially since I thought it sounded good for a quick dinner. Too much tomato in this one. I like my beef stew in brown gravy. Read More

I tried several of the suggestions to this recipe and found it very very good. I used about 3/8 c flour 1/2 tbs kosher salt 1 tbs of freshly ground black pepper & pepper medley. Used two bottles (24 ozs total) of lager beer to give more malty taste. Sub'd 1 10oz can of diced tomatoes with chopped jalapenos for the can of tomato sauce but kept the paste in. Added 1 tbs of Vindaloo curry 1 tbs of Worcestershire sauce 2 cloves garlic 2 small chopped vidalia onions 1 cup of shredded red cabbage 1 16 oz package of frozen Italian blend veggies 2 bay leaves maybe 1 1/2 c diced potatoes used olive oil for the oil called for. I would call the result a thickened soup; not quite a stew but without adding any cornstarch or flour roux (beyond the floured meat to start) I thought it thickened up nicely. Thanks to the originator of this recipe and all who contributed other ideas. Read More

Too much tomato for us but otherwise a nice thick stew! Next time I'll have less tomato and add more salt. I also added some garlic and all purpose seasoning. That helped add some flavor to it!:) Read More

Thank you thank you thank you. This has got to be one of the best stews we've ever ate (and I'm not a stew person). It was very easy to make and although I added a little bit more spice it turned out to be great. A huge hit within the family and all our friends! Read More

I read previous reviews and NO it is NOT too salty!! In fact I needed to add a ton. I substituted frozen veg for canned and I added 1/2 a minced onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic. It was really missing a lot of flavor until I also added a little worshtershire and soy. Read More

I liked this recipe although it was more like a soup than a stew...there was so much liquid and it was runny not thick like a stew should be. But it had great flavor and the whole family liked it! I've made it two or three times now and there's so much it lasts for at least 2 days! Read More
