This stew was so good my kids even said "this is the best stew I have ever had!". I made a few changes after reading other comments. In a plastic bag I put 1/4 cup flour, teaspoon of garlic powder, onion powder. 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and mustard powder. The I added the stew meat in batches and shook it. Then I cooked it in my dutch oven with some oil till lighly browned. This adds excellent flavor to the meat. I then browned the onion in the remaining oil and scrapped up those brown bits on the bottom of the pot. Once the onion was translucent I deglazed the rest with about a 1/2 cup of red wine. I cooked that for about 5 minutes before adding the meat and rest of the liquids to cook of some of the alcohol. I did add more vegetables as others suggested (1 more carrot, celery, potato) I added 1/2 of an extra onion with the addition of the veggies. I also took the advice of another reviewer and added 1 tblsp of ketchup, HP Sauce, and worcestershire sauce -great advice...I was told by my husband "I would pay money for this...restaurant quality!"
