Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


It was ok

This was my first time making a beef stew. It was ok, after some altering. The tomatoes were too over powering, but other wise it was descent. The next time I make the stew I will use less tomatoes and beef broth instead of the bouillon cubes. The stew was also very bland.

Absolutely amazing

This has easily become our favorite recipe. I make a batch for 12 and we eat it for days. Although I never thought it possible, this really is better the next day. I have a toddler and she just loves it, as picky as she is. My husband is even more picky and he would eat this every day if I made it available. The only change I made was that I added more garlic because we just love it, but it is of course fine without the extra. Inexpensive to make and just absolutely delicious! Thanks so much!
