I have made this many times over the years but never reviewed it. I saw this in this month's Allrecipes Magazine which reminded me that I haven't made this in a long time. It is definitely 5 star both as written or if you want to make some minor changes to your taste. My guy, like others, likes lots of beef in his stew so I used 3 lbs of beef, 5 cups of beef broth, one cup of cabernet wine ( my preference over the cubes and water). I left everything else the same as written for 2 lbs, except for increasing the spices a bit to taste since there was more liquid. As others suggested, I increased the cornstarch and water to 6 tsp. each to accommodate the increase in liquid. At the very end, I added some frozen peas. I don't like mushy peas. Thanks again submitter and thanks Allspice for adding and oldie but goodie to your magazine.
