This recipe is awesome! I seasoned the meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder (no flour) before browning. I used "better than bouillon" instead of granules. I let it simmer two hours before I added the potatoes. Waited another 30 minutes before adding the carrots and celery; I like them crispier, not soft. I doubled the cornstarch but it was still brothy like soup, which is just fine with me. My almost vegetarian daughter had a bowl of broth, carrots and celery and loved it. The real test will be my hubby; he does not like soups or stews as a rule. (He will be trying it tomorrow for lunch.) This is now in my rotation of comfort food. Perfect for these 15 degree days.UPDATE: finally figured out how to thicken the stew. mixed together 2 to 1 ratio of cornstarch to water and added when the stew was finished. Stew thickened up in less than 5 minutes.
