Made enough for 8 people and it was ALL GONE! Used olive oil vs. vegetable oil and the beef was mega tender. Overall a basic good tasting Beef stew.
This is very much a base recipe. I like a hearty stew and this was kind of minimal as it was. I added more veggies (celery ,onion & turnip) a clove of crushed garlic and a bit of rosemary. The broth/water mixture at the start needs to be doubled. Also add a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch to a bit of cold water in a small bowl to make a paste and then add it to the broth/water mixture prior to boiling in order to thicken it. It needs playing around with but it can be tweaked.
Very good base recipe. I made a couple changes to suit our families taste. I used 2lb meat, added 1/2 onion, diced, when I browned the meat. Also added 3 cloves of garlic, chopped, when I added the broth and 1 1/2 cup chopped celery when I added the carrots. I didn't add potatoes to the pan but served the stew over mashed potatoes instead. Big hit with the Hubby & kids!
Skip the thyme and bay leaf next time. Add 1 can of beer and beef bullion to taste. Serve with french bread.
Makes a great basic stew. I threw in a handful of frozen peas a minute before serving and even my picky four year old gobbled it all up. I'll make it again!
I used all beef broth (instead of water) and added a package of french onion soup mix and it turned out great. My in-laws loved it!
I LOVE this recipe! Changed it up a bit too cuz I wanted to use up some ingredients in the refrig. I browned stew beef in olive oil as someone else suggested. I used Golden Mushroom Soup and 1 pkg. of onion soup mix. I added a bottle of Blue Moon Beer--nobody likes it in my house (!), 1 c. of H2O, 1 heaping Tbsp. of blackstrap molasses, 3 good shakes of Worchesthire, 1 turnip, 3/4 can of diced tomatoes, LOTs of minced garliic, basil, oregano, LOTs of ground pepper and also the celery, carrots and potatoes. Then, still in the clean out the refrig. mode, I added 1/2 can of sauerkraut. It's been cooking in the slowcooker for a few hrs. & already my whole family has been circling around the kitchen asking when we are eating... The broth is thick, the meat smells heavenly...and the carrots and potato pieces I've sampled are really, really good! Try this one!
FANTASTIC basic recipe!! I had never made beef stew before, and now I make it once a week! However, the last time I made it I threw in an extra half pound of meat because I felt that there wasnt enough and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend this recipe.
