Great Smells is right!!! The taste ws even better. Note, that I used the Awesome Red Wine Pot Roast recipe that I found on here to make the Pot Roast with the exception that I cooked for 2 1/2 hours. Then refrigerated the roast until the next day. The I folled this recipe. My husband and I loved it. And my son the next day asked me to hold on to the recipe because it was the best beef stew he had ever had. I could not find the Italian seasoned tomatos but found something called seasoned diced tomatoes. I also added a 1/2 cup Sangria as well. This recipe is definitely as keeper!
We gave this three stars. It tasted fine and was easy to throw together, but my family prefers a more traditional beef stew without a tomato base.
I added extra herbs (oregano, fresh basil, a bit of rosemary) and veggies (some celery, mushrooms, extra carrots). Yum! Even DS5 liked it (although he wasn't fond of the potatoes or mushrooms). Perfect on a cold and windy Northwest day!
Great smells are coming out of the kitchen with this recipe!!! My family enjoyed me cooking it almost as much as it being served on the table and eaten. Whoever has a mom like this is lucky, I had added some garlic at the end to meet are garlic addiction but i didn't want it to interupt the flavour from the stew too much. Thank you for this recipe!!
Very good. Will definitely make again.
This is an excellent easy recipe! I don't care for the tomatoes being so chunky so I cooked it longer than recommended. Next time I'm considering adding a can of vegall. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a tee and everyone ate it all up!
Made this last night and my family LOVED it...I however think I will cut down on the stewed tomatoes by about 8 oz and increase the broth as I found it a bit too much tomato for a stew (hopefully my husband doesnt notice :) ) Also I added celery and to the flour I added Montreal Steak Spice for some extra flavor. Will definately be making again and will add fresh mushrooms next time as well (with the little adjustment).
This was soooo yummy! The only thing I did differently was that I used Olive Oil instead of Vegetable oil. My husband (who does not like Beef Stew) loved it.
