OMG! I just finished a huge bowl of this and would have had more if I wasn't so stuffed! I've been cooking for the last four and a half decades and have made more than my share of stews. I would have to say that this is the best darned pot of stew that I've ever made! Now, I can't stand folks who rate a recipe 5 stars and then go on to tell you the myriad changes they made to the original. Submit your own recipe if your version is so terrific. That being said, LOL, here are the minimal changes that I made. For health reasons I used reduced sodium broth and salt free tomato sauce. I also found a salt free onion soup mix and used a tablespoon of that instead of the cube of salt-laden bullion. I also left out the celery as I didn't have any and caramelized the onions to add a bit more depth of flavor. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Oh, I added a bit of flour towards the end as I am not partial to thin stew. Even with the salt reduced to almost nothing, the taste was wonderful. All the flavors melded together without any one ingredient outshining the others. All in all, a very easy, flavorful stew for a chilly or raw fall or winter night. Thank you Paul for submitting.
