Reviews for Chunky Baked Beef Stew
"My husband thought this stew had a very good flavor. I used boneless chuck roast, so it needed to cook longer - about 2 hrs. Next time I'll increase the liquids and maybe add a jar of beef gravy, as it was a little dry with the extra cooking time. Will definitely make this recipe again."
"This is so good! My family loved this recipe. Easy to make to, have made this several times already! Thank youCA"
