My family enjoyed this. I only used 1/2 a package of the onion soup mix and used 2 cans of tomato sauce instead of tomato soup - also added some beef bouillon to the water for more flavor. We will make this again.

Thank you thank you thank you for FINALLY resolving my unsatisfying stew saga. Myself AND my husband loved this dish - he is uber picky so that is telling you something! I realize that others take issue when you review based on your own modifications but I was out of one of the main ingredients so I subbed (tomato soup). Here is what I did - First I seasoned the heck out of the beef with salt, pepper and lemon pepper. I used flank steak because I can not stand how fatty beef stew cubes always seem to be at my grocery store. Then I didn't have the tomato soup so I used French onion - we are onion fanatics so this was great. I added a teaspoon of minced garlic and replaced the water with beef broth. Holy flavor town! I left out the bay leaves because I personally can't stand them. The steak sauce addition was so awesome - loved that ingredient!! Until this recipe I always hated the way my stew came out - not anymore, this is a staple in our house says my husband! I didn't have enough time so I did the crockpot on high for 6 hours - great. THANK YOU!!!
