This came out great...I did customize it...used a pound of beef and more fresh carrots plus I threw in a can of green beans and a can of corn a few minutes before serving. I always coat my beef in a mixture of flour, a pinch of salt, and 2 teaspoons black pepper. Also, I used a product called: Better than Boullion, more convenient than the hard cubes...I, like some of the others, like a thick stew so I added 2T. more cornstarch. Rosemary is one of my favorite spices, but next time I will decrease it. I added a bay leaf as one reviewer suggested, great flavor addition...One suggestion: cut carrots very thin, same with celery and potatoes..or else pre cook as another person recommended...First time I made this and cut the carrots in 1 inch chunks as directed, they were hard after 2 hours of cooking. I used six cups of broth as I add lots of veggies. Served with cheesey biscuits once and with a pesto french bread several times...very hearty.
