I have tried many recipes from this site and most have been great, but this is the first I've rated. I followed the advice of others and added seasonings to the flour (Tony's and garlic powder), browned 2 lbs of meat with 1/2 onion, then deglazed the pan with about 1/3 cup dry red wine. I then put it all in a crockpot, added an extra can of broth, used 4 lbs of red potatoes, a tbsp of Worchestershire sauce, and the 2 tbsp of mustard, as called for in the recipe. I let it cook on high for 6 hrs, but the potatoes were not quite done and it smelled a little off. But, after adding the mustard and allowing to cook on low for a few more hours, it was perfect. Gravy was smooth and had complex flavor. It was even better the next day. Got rave reviews... husband said it was the BEST stew he'd ever had. And I have to agree!! YUM!!!
