After reading numerous recipes and reviews, I settled on this one for my 1st ever stew. Yumm! I added a packaged of onion soup mix to the flour to coat the meat, would add onions at the same time as the meat next time so they cook more. Added 2 carrots in the beginning and no extra carrots or onions at the end. Added 1 cup red wine (mmmm) for 4 total cups of liquid with the beef broth. Also used 5 red potatoes total and added them at the same time as the liquid so they would cook all the way through. I served over egg noodles for a one-dish meal. Was about 90 min total cooking time and so worth it.


This recipe has been included in book#246531. This has the hearty, old-fashioned taste that I’ve been looking for. The meat cooked up so tender, and the gravy was really delicious! I added a few fresh mushrooms and 1/4 cup of barley I had on hand. The whole family loved it and it is a perfect dinner for a cold evening! Thanks for posting this terrific recipe!
