Reviews for Beef and Onion Stew
"This was delicious! Although we didn't use that much salt...use your taste preferences. I don't use much salt & my family is used to it. We ate ours on egg noodles, it was really, really good! We did add fresh mushrooms in with the onions too :)"
"Yummy. I doubled the "sauce" ingredients and added a bunch of fresh green beans to the pot just before simmering. I didn't have lemon pepper, so I just left it out. Still delicious!"
"I followed this precisely by ingredients, but after browning the beef and onions, I threw it into a crockpot for 4 hours. Very good, but My husband and I both thought the thyme was a bit heavy. I'll be trying this again, but without- or with much less- thyme."
"I loved this flavorful recipe! I added a small package of frozen spinach during the cooking time and the end result tastes wonderful! Served over noodles with warm slices of french bread... this meal is simply fantastic."
"Turned out delicious. The meat was extremely tender but didn't fall apart. Zesty flavor that even my fussy kids loved. For pepper lovers, it would be excellent with green pepper."
