I first had this dish during a trip to Argentina a few years ago. It inspired me to recreate it at home. It turned out so well, I wrote "Yum!" on the recipe card! —Kari Caven, Post Falls, Idaho

MY REVIEW

Really good. A great comfort food. I did use canned tomatoes instead of fresh. I also halved the recipe and it still made a ton!

Great recipe. I had to add onion and garlic with the beef for my obsessive family. I also halved the bacon to reduce the fat a little. Thanks for sharing.

This was so good! I agree that it does need a little more seasoning, but, that is pretty typical of any stew and was easy enough to adjust. I think next time I will add an onion. Also, I halved the recipe and it totally filled my 3 1/2 qt crock pot. Delicious!

The texture of this stew was perfect - the meat melt in your mouth and the veggies were so tender. It needed more seasoning, though.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2010

Only change I made was to substitute a can of petite diced tomatoes (undrained) for the tomatoes. This dish should rate 10 stars! I was told to throw out my other beef stew recipes and only keep this one! It is really awesome!
