"This recipe was a hit with my family although I used veggie protein crumbles in place of the beef and chicken broth and water in place of the beef consomme and red wine or beef broth."

"Never thought about artichokes in a stew. It was wonderful. Easy and fast to put together the night before. Then refrig. and take it out in the morning for a switch on and go."
"Love it! Easy and great flavors!"
"Delicious! I used a whole chuck roast which I didn't flour and brown. Just placed it with the liquids and seasonings in a foil covered pan and baked for 5 hours in a 275 degree oven. Took out some of the juices and thickened with corn starch."
"Easy and tasted great.."
"I have made this recipe several times for the whole family; we all love it! Very tasty."
"Outstanding. I would serve this to company. Because it is so easy it affords more time with family and guests. Taste is superb. I added additional non-marinated artichokes. Even in our 70s we like to try new things, and this is a definite keeper. Thank you for sharing it."
