MY REVIEW

"Delicious and so easy. You just leave it in the pot to cook on its own."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 5, 2014

"This is a fantastic stew. I like mine a bit thicker so I just coat the stew meat in flour before browning. The herbs give it amazing flavor and you can use whatever veggies you prefer. I haven't even made it with fresh tomatoes yet since a can of diced works so well and fresh aren't very tasty yet. I'm working on tweaking it a bit for the freezer by using frozen cubed hash browns right before freezing."

"The original recipe had 10 ounces frozen peas - the ingredients here do not list peas - the picture even shows peas. 5 stars with peas!"

"This has been my mom's beef stew recipe for years. She just recently gave it to me and I made it for my husband. He loved it! It has amazing flavor, and we tweak the timing to make it work in a crockpot. Super easy and is the best flavored stew I've ever had!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2011

"This stew is wonderful! My fiance' can't stop eating it once he starts. The only change I make is to use a can of diced tomatoes, especially in the winter when fresh tomatoes aren't so tasty. You won't be disappointed if you choose to try this."
