This is a great variation of beef stew. The walnuts add a little crunch, the flavor is fabulous and the meat was so tender. I thought the amount of mushrooms and walnuts seemed like a lot, so I used less, but I'm sure it's great either way. I would also recommend at least a 1/2 tsp. of pepper.

This was just okay. It lacked flavor and the walnuts didn't really add anything; wasn't crazy about the texture either. Definitely could have used more veggies to be considered a "stew" in our house.

This recipe is WONDERFUL! The peppers may disintegrate (I made it twice...red peppers pretty much melted, green peppers held shape) but it doesn't change the great flavor of the recipe! 2lbs of chuck steak does not seem excessive to me (as noted by another reviewer) considering the recipe is for EIGHT servings.

Really great flavor. That's a LOT of meat though in ratio to the other ingredients. So, 8 servings or 2 servings... this is A LOT of meat -- really less like a stew that I would eat straight out, and more like an entree that should be served over rice or something (to level out the meat overdose!)

We did not care for this. Too many walnuts gave it an off flavor.

Great stew for a cold night. I substituted canned stewed tomatoes for the tomato juice and cut the walnut pieces small after roasting them slightly. After tucking into it, I realized that it would have been even more delicious if I had added a touch of red wine.

Sadly, this didn't go over at our house at all.

I really enjoyed this recipe and so did my kids. I did not have tomato juice, but I used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and added water. I also served it over rice only because I thought my kids may enjoy it more.
