Beef Tips
Very tasty, but quite salty. I used no salt and only 1 T. Worcestershire sauce, but the full 1/2 c. soy sauce. I'll use less soy sauce next time. Also used only 1/2 c. water with the gravy mix and let it simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes after adding and the consistency was perfect! I cooked it for 2 hours total and the meat was very tender. Not sure why others would have tough meat unless they're not using stew meat.

Scrumptious Chicken Vegetable Stew
Great flavor! I did make a few changes mostly in the preparation. I left out the fennel because I didn't have any and it was delicious without it. I also cooked it on the stove-top, not the microwave. I used 3 1/2 c. chicken broth (2 1/2 c. to start and then added 1 c. with the carrots and spinach toward the end.) I put the chicken, diced tomatoes, lentils, 2 1/2 c. chicken broth, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a large pot and cooked it for about an hour. Then added 1 c. water with the carrots and spinach and cooked for another 15 mins. or so, until the carrots were tender. I'll definitely make this again!
