Ugh...blah! Was NOTHING special...actually it is named appropriately - it tasted like a shipwreck. No spice no flavor no nothing. Even with added spices it was just...just....there. Not making this again. Read More

My kids loved this so much that they want it again this week! The only change I made was I did not add the meat until about 1/2 hour before serving. Was wonderful w/ homemade rolls. I think what made it so great was as soon as they left for school I started it and did not have much to do before dinnertime and it was a complete meal in one pot! Thank you for posting this great recipe! Read More

This is a very good basic recipe the nice thing about it is that you can add a varity of differnt things....I have to admit that I did change it only because I only had a couple ingredients and it sounded good. I used steak ( ribeye) and seasoned with a dash of the following.... garlic powder onion powder celery salt and a dash or two of chili powder while browning it 2 cans of diced tomato 1 can kidney bean and 1 can black bean half a onion and half the potatos. Yum yum yum......Thank you next time I will be sure to try it your way but it's so flexible very tastey!!! Read More

this is a very flavorful recipe with simple ingredients. i went with the flow & added nearly a teaspoon of garlic powder briefly sauteed my onion & added a cup of chopped carrots to the mix. the quantity was too much for my crock pot so i put everything in a dutch oven & baked it at 325 degrees for 1 hour then reduced the temperature to 200 degrees for 4 more hours. yummy on a cool autumn night! thanks deb!

I really like this stew for it's simplicity. I added some carrots used stewing beef instead of ground beef and increased the cooking time a little bit. This is a regular meal at my house now! Read More

We used to make this recipe over a campfire. However since one son is allergic to kidney beans we added whole kernel corn instead. Delicious! Read More
