This was allright. Of all the stews I've made, this was the mildest (almost verging on bland) and had the most soup-like texture. Having said this, I have yet to find a stew I DON'T like, but because I know there are better ones out there, I won't likely make this one again. I must disclose that I did not follow EIORE's recipe exactly (I know!). I feared 6 hours in a crockpot would not produce tender meat and potatoes, so I set mine to cook for 8 hours. NOTE: Many reviewers complained that their potatoes did not cook thru. If cut into small pieces (i.e. dice), they will be fine, even if simmering for the suggested 6 hour timeframe (this is key). This would be perfect for large families - it's easy on the pocketbook, makes a good amount, is easy to prepare and is mild enough to please multiple palates (especially kiddo's tastebuds). Served with warm French bread, this was a very filling, but average meal. Thanks for sharing, EIORE! :-)
