"A classic, simple beef stew recipe that my grandmother developed and that is now being enjoyed by a fourth generation in my family. Delicious with salad and a crusty bread."

I tried this recipe because Pauline Werner said that it goes back four generations. It indeed, tasted like the stew that my mother used to make. I was never able to make my stew taste quite like hers, until now.
Admittedly, I am from New Zealand, and this is just a typical stew over this side of the world. If the stew was oven heated on a low setting for around three hours, the meat would melt in your mouth and the flavours would have melded together better. A nice recipe though.
The best stew I have ever had! My whole family loved it. Super easy to make. Made the whole house smell terrific. With dinner rolls, the perfect meal for a cold evening. I usually add dried thyme - I think it adds a traditional "stew" flavour.
A very delicious recipe, and so easy to prepare! I used beef broth instead of water, and it sure gave it that slow-cooked, savory taste!
This is a basic beef stew which is made better by substituting the tomato sauce with a can of stewed tomatoes and adding a package of onion soup mix with the water. This tastes fresher and more flavorful!
This was a great stew, but I did need to add more to it as it seemed bland to me. So I added garlic powder and some thyme....and kosher salt. I think next time I will use a beef or vegetabe broth. Overall, it turned out great!
I just had my wife's mother over for dinner and I made this stew. The smell wafting throughout the house was almost as good as actually eating this delicious stew. It was truly a great dinner, thanks!
By far the easiest and best beef stew recipe I've ever had. I wouldn't make any changes to the base recipe, however just because my family likes them in beef stew, I also added a drained can of baby green peas and drained can of whole kernel corn toward the end of cooking time. Amazingly delicious!!
