We enjoyed this stew. My rating isn't entirely fair, since I didn't follow the recipe exactly. Based on other reviews, I browned a whole chopped onion and the chopped potatoes along with the brats in a little olive oil. I feel like this brought out extra flavor in the vegetables, but I can't say for sure since I didn't try it without. I also used cheese soup in place of the cheddar and cream of onion soup instead of cream of mushroom (I don't like cream of mushroom much.) I added 1/2 bottle of dark beer instead of the water. And I added the red pepper and green beans (about 8 oz. frozen, not canned)in for the last 30 minutes of cooking so they wouldn't get soggy. With these changes, we thought it was very good. It still could have used a little extra flavor - maybe some cheddar cheese stirred in at the end, or some hot sauce, or some garlic sauteed with the potatoes and onions?
