Reviews for Jamaican-Style Beef Stew

My husband and adult son love this. I prepared everything the night before and put it in the slow cooker 8 hrs on low. It was wonderful!! To save time I used baby carrots. Also added just a little powdered Jamaican jerk seasoning to kick it up a knotch.
This was outstanding! We substituted lean stew meat and I left out the steak sauce because we had none and doubled the spice. We rarely eat red meat but this recipe will have us coming back again and again.
I was looking for a recipe with a different flavor and WOW!! OMG did I ever find it. It is a great cold weather dish. I will definitely make this dish again!
This is similar to how I have been making my stew beef...but I use short ribs instead, and dice potatoes and make spinners to cook down in the stew, and finally, instead of hot pepper sauce, I use a scotch bonnet pepper for better flavour. I don't use beef broth or corn starch or bbq sauce or steak sauce...not necessary.
Great recipe! Very savory, and makes the house smell wonderful while it is simmering on the stove. We like it with mashed potatoes -- the gravy from the stew goes really well with them.
