I always follow the recipe exactly when I make something for the first time. This had good flavor but the meat was really dried out and the veggies undercooked. I even diced them smaller than suggested. I
This was very good, and healthy. It wasnt full of salt and other non-staples like other stews. I halved the meat, did a whole package of onion soup mix, doubled the water, and cooked it covered for 2 hours, then uncovered for 25 mins. It made 2 good meals for me and my hubby - he really liked it! The beef was super tender and had lots of nice oniony flavour, the veggies were a little bit softer than I liked but tasted good too! Worth it, I'd definitely make it again.
This savory stew is worth the time it takes to prep--which was far more than the 10 minutes shown in the recipe. After cleaning, peeling and cutting the vegetables, I would allow about 20-30 minutes for prep. The recipe doesn't make much broth, so consider using 1 to 1.5 cups of water (or beef broth) if your like more liquid. I didn't include the rutabaga, but made the rest of the recipe as written. The 2 teaspoons of dried basil was plenty. We liked it, but you may want to reduce the basil slightly if you want a less pronounced flavor. Finally, I will bake the stew for 2 hours (covered) to ensure all vegetables are well cooked. The 30-40 minute uncovered bake time seems about right. Of course, this could be done in a slow cooker. I would guess 7 hours on low would be about right, but I'll have to test it. Homemade stew lovers should really enjoy this treat!
Didn't use the beef. LOVED THIS!!!
I made this today...very nice taste although I did put in two packets of soup mix....and twice as much water so I had more broth....very good though
