"This is a great comfort food for those cold winter days, and it's great tasting. This is my own recipe. I like to serve it in big pre-warmed soup bowls with salad and French bread."

Unbelievable – I forgot to add the garlic AND the onion (busy day today) and Hubs and I agreed it was still “D” good! I’m sure this would have been even better with those additions but quite honestly, I don’t see how! Other than using fresh herbs rather than dried (the fresh equivalent is 3:1 and I substituted oregano for the marjoram) and forgetting the onion and garlic I followed the recipe as written and it was simple perfection. Rich, savory, flavorful, neither too thin nor too thick. We cleaned up every bit of this and Hubs has requested a repeat soon. The only thing I’ll do differently next time is to be sure to follow the recipe more closely and not forget the onion and the garlic. I’m sure it will take this “A” recipe to “A+.”
I was very anxious to try this recipe after reading the other reviews and loved the thought of a nice stew on this cool fall day. Unfortunately, we felt this "stew" lacked flavor and thickness. I added a bunch of salt and flour to get it. I doubt I'll make it again.
I was a bit hesitant to try this because I don't like the taste of wines in stews...weird, I know-lol! But I gave it a shot anyway, and I'm so glad I did. It was pretty good the first day, it was even better the second day. By the third day, it really was heavenly. It didn't last
longer than that, as we were each trying to get the last bowl without the other noticing. I doubled the recipe, which is why it lasted so long. I tried to follow the recipe as close as possible. I couldn't find low sodium beef broth, so I used regular. I also only used half the amount of mushrooms. I cut the meat slightly smaller than is in most stews, to spread it out a bit more. I can't say how well it freezes. That was my intention when I doubled the recipe. Unfortunately, it was just too good to stop eating. I'll be making it again this afternoon. Can't wait! EDITED TO ADD...it took much longer than the suggested cooking time. I added in the carrots after cooking the meat and broth for 30 minutes. I added the remaining ingredients and spices after cooking for the suggested cooking time of 1hour. Then cooked another 40 or so minutes.
This was delicious! I sautéed half the onion and two cloves of garlic with the meat. Then, added more garlic and the rest of the onion at the end like the recipe suggests. Otherwise I followed the recipe to the letter. It was very simple and tasty. Even my finicky 13 year old ate it... and that's saying something! I didn't have any trouble with the thickness. I don't like watery stew, this was just thick enough, kind of the consistency of gravy. I will definitely make this again!
Followed this recipe exactly and it's delicious! I used cabernet and it was great! I also added the mushrooms with the meat (earlier than the rest of the veggies) so they could soak in the wine a bit longer. Definitely a keeper!!
Followed the recipe, with the exceptions of using merlot instead of burgundy and using fresh thyme instead of dried. The meat needed about one and one-half hours to become tender though, so be sure to allow some extra time because of this. This was a satisfying dinner on a very cold night.
Delicious!! I served it over egg noddles.
I don't usually like stews but this was amazing! My super picky husband even had 3 servings!
I need to add a little more of both liquids toward the end but I think that is because I added too many mushrooms and they absorbed a lot of liquid.
I will add more carrots next time too.
absolutely fantastic stew. one look at the ingredients and i was sold. if i would've ordered this from a nice restaurant i would've been pleased. a very mature, subtle and savory recipe. this one's going back into the rotation for sure! thanks for sharing!
