Bland as all get out, sorry. Beef stew needs to be hearty, beefy and tasty. This just didn't cut it for my family. It is too watery, and needs to cook longer to tenderize the meat. You don't need to remove the meat when thickening - just use a flour shaker to shake flour into the stew until your desired consistency. I don't add corn, but have added green beans, which the family prefers. The key to a good beef stew is a thick, hearty sauce/broth - it shouldn't be soup like, which is what we got with this. I had to doctor it up quite a bit (spices) and cook it much longer to get it where we like it (thick and hearty).
