"I just had your stew ad it was not very good at all. I guess it must work for some. I would not ever eat it again. 1 star is too many."

"I grow and can my own tomatoes. I prefer to use them. Also agree no shrooms! Potatoes make it more a comfort food! Use a chuck roast and Kitchen Bouquet for a base. Make it in a pressure cooker!"

"the canned tomato soup spoiled it for me!!! stewed tomatoes would be a better choice.."

MY REVIEW

"This sounds wonderful, but would probably add a can of tomatoes and substitute potatoes for the mushrooms."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2014

"If it's stew what happened to the liquid? Just a big bowl of food with average taste. So many great beef stew recipes out there. This one did not measure up."
