"I was confused that the recipe didn't call for browning the stew meat before putting it in the oven, so I dusted the meat with flour and then browned it. I followed the recipe as written for the rest. Turned out pretty good. My husband and my picky 98 year old mother both enjoyed it, especially the mushrooms. I will probably make it again and we are looking forward to the leftovers!"
