Very easy, all ingredients you have in your pantry tho it LOOKS like a long list. This is a tomato based beef stew as opposed to a beef gravy stew. Very tasty......would also be good over rice, pasta or noodles. Try this! Could also easily be done in a crockpot, I think. Easily reduce-able too....I made a recipe for 4 and still have a full pot.

FANTASTIC!! This is the BEST beef stew. I double the potatoes, great with warm bread on a cold night.

No changes, I make it just as the recipe calls for. This is a favorite with 2/3 kids at our house. My littlest calls it 'Merida Stew' since we like to eat it with crusty bread, by candlelight, and pretend we are in medieval times. Has a great taste and we love it in the winter months.

Very good. I put a small spin on it tho. I used venison instead of beef and it turn out wonderful.

I have used this recipe for 4 years now. It is the best! Everyone loves the tomato base that is not too strong. I am constantly asked for the recipe. Follow it to a T, or do as I do with these changes: -replace the bell pepper with 2-3 stalks celery, sliced -replace the water/bouillon with beef broth That's it! This recipe is divine. The long cook time is the secret to the tenderness of the meat and the savory flavor.

Great recipe. I make a few adjustments like adding canned green beans and peas.
