Reviews for Gone-All-Day Stew
"This is my go-to recipe for beef stew. I've been making it since the original recipe came out in TOH, but without the mushrooms. It's the herb combination that makes it so special. The house smells wonderful all day while it cooks in the crockpot."
"made just as printed w/o mushrooms and celery since I didn't have any (wasn't going out in a snow storm) but I had to add about 2 cups of beef broth. It was really short on liquid and it needs something extra to flavor it up other wise it smelled good while cooking. I used 1/2 c of red wine instead of 1 c."
"Taking longer than the 4-5 hours stated. Vegetables not done-:("
"This was delicious !!! The wine gave it very good flavor. We do not eat beef, so I made it with shawarma and it was perfect. Also I agree with destine about the rudeness of the one star review Just because there is anonymity. Since 19 out of the 20 reviews were rated 4 or 5 stars, the reviewer must have done something wrong."
"This recipe has been in "MY FAVORITE RECIPES" collection for many years and has beenmade many times. It never disappoints. The only difference being that the meat is notbrowned first. However, I have been wanting this wonderful meal lately and will be making it very soon - great dinner for a cool autumn day. I make mine in a blue enamel roasting pan covered in the oven - DELICIOUS!!!!"
"This isn't about the recipe, as I haven't made it. But no matter, I agree with "destine"--"uwasv_waya" is way out of line. What vitriol--over a recipe, of all things. Whoever you are, you need to be on medication."
"Regarding the review by uwasv_waya - I don't understand such rudeness and vitriol over a simple recipe. You're the only one that gave it a negative review. Perhaps you did something wrong that no one else did. If the woman who contributed the recipe were standing right before you would you say what you wrote about her recipe to her face?"
"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."
"Sounds great but have not tried it yet"
