This recipe was easy and very good! I will definitely make this again. I added beef broth and used italian seasoning instead of thyme. This is one of our favorites!

Since I'm not a huge Thyme lover, I subbed my homemade Italian Seasoning. I also don't think just thyme & canned tomato products would make a very tasty sauce. I added beef broth, garlic and worcestshire (ms).

I too am not a big fan of Thyme, so I used Italian Seasoning. I also coated the beef in flour before adding it to the rest of the ingredients, and used pearl onions. I would absolutely do this again.

A little runny - needs some cornstarch or something. Otherwise very good!

Fantastic Beef stew. I added in about 2+ cups of beef stock because 1/4 cup of water is not enough water for the amount of food in the slow cooker. Turned out great. This was the best stew we have made so far in our slow cooker.

Oh man, this turned out so good. i took some other's advice and didn't add thyme. I put in italian seasoning. Also added some potato flakes to thicken it up. Will definitely do this one again.

Not bad at all. Pretty much followed the recipe, but added a packet of stew seasoning. I think that was a mistake because it was awful salty. I didn't add salt anywhere else. I'm sure the broth added some though. I also added Worcestershire, which added flavor, but probably salt as well. Overall, it's a great "base" recipe that can be tweaked to your liking.

Best beef stew recipe I've made. You can't really taste the Thyme (which I'm not crazy for) and the leftovers are thickened perfectly. I love beef stew and I'm sticking with this recipe. I did use the no salt tomatoes and had to substitute tomato soup (15 oz, not condensed) for the paste. I also used 2.5# of stew meat.
