This healthy, hearty stew is one of my husband's favorite meals. I always use fresh mushrooms, and I toss low-sodium bouillon cubes right into the roaster...no dissolving first in liquid. No additional salt is necessary. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania

"I haven't tried this one yet, but it is very similar to a beef stew recipe that I have made for many years, that is delicious. I don't understand uwasv_ways review. Maybe it was the worcestershire sauce that spoiled it, considering that the recipe doesn't even call for any worcestershire sauce! I think the reference to what his/her dogs eat and lick was disgusting and uncalled for."

"This mess should be called Italian garbage stew. I used half the amount of italian seasoning and even after a liberal amount of worcestershire sauce all I could taste was that Italian seasoning. My dogs said to make more. But what would you expect from them based on some of the things they eat and lick?"

"This is absolutely wonderful. We have it at least twice a month!"

"This is very good and it makes your house smell amazing while it is cooking. Even my picky-eater daughter liked this. I used 1/2 cup of red wine and 1 can of beef broth instead of any water and the beef bouillion cubes. This is a great cold-weather day dinner. Takes a little time to prep the veggies, so if you are using the crock pot on a work day, I would suggest doing the prep work the night before."
