I found the taste slightly sweet and the tomatoes were not much in taste evidence. I liked the stew cold next day much more than hot first day. The proportions of meat and vegetables were great. This recipe makes 8 hearty servings or 12 regular servings, esp. if served with biscuits or some other. At 375° covered, no peeking, for 2 hrs, everything is tender. My meat was cubed round roast and I used a cubed hard crust bun for my bread (recipe didn’t specify bread type). A sprinkle of Montreal steak sauce on a serving helps it somewhat. Perhaps my expectations were too high because of all the 5 star reviews. Full disclosure: used ground cherry and vine ripe tomato instead of canned (none on hand), used veg broth with "better than bouillon" instead of beef granules (again, none on hand). Any modification will change a recipe somewhat but I doubt these small mod’s would make all the difference. I won’t make again; I am usually not so exacting when making stew and I find using my dutch oven either on stove-top or in the oven easier to handle than the 9”x13” pan.
