Followed the recipe. Stew was boring. No flavor. Didn't even create a nice aroma when cooking. Used premium ingredients. Yuck! Good for hog slops.
I made this for my husband and myself a couple of weeks ago. I took a photo and uploaded it but forgot to post a review. I used a frozen bag of mixed vegetables, added some minced fresh garlic, and used the optional cream of mushroom soup. I thought it was good but just felt like it was lacking something. My husband didn't like it at all. He said it was very bland. I think it was because of the brown gravy mix. Next time I'll try it with beefy onion soup mix and water instead of the beef broth and gravy mix. I'll also thaw the frozen vegetables and add them at the end so they don't get mushy and washed out looking.
Add some garlic and 1 pk of gravy instead of two and it was great!
I made this on a cold winter afternoon because we had thawed steak in the fridge. I used steak because it was thawed and waiting to be cooked. The meat was so tender I could chew it, just days after i had atooth extracted! The veggies were firm, but not too crunchy. Didn't have gravy mix, used onion soup mix instead. Corn and peas are a nice surprise for a stew.
This is a great recipe. I added more onions (but I *always* add more onions!) and I also didn't throw my frozen veggies in until the very end. The beef was so very tender. This recipe is very easy to personalize to your family's tastes. I prefer it with an onion gravy mix as well. Give it a try! :D
