My husband, our five children and I have enjoyed this easy-to-make stew for years. We especially love the dumplings. Our bachelor son even makes it for himself! - Margaret Froehling, Wood Dale, Illinois

"This is quick. However, without the modifications I made I feel it would be bland. I added some onion, garlic, and a very small amount of sugar when cooking the meat. I also sprinkled some cheese on top."

"This stew is like magic to me! So quick and easy and so hearty. A great fall/winter meal. I did find that I wanted it to be a little more flavorful, so I used a can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano (instead of just regular diced tomatoes) and added 1 beef bouillon OR 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules. It came out so good! Also, note that all the canned ingredients should be UN-drained. The entire contents of the cans get poured into the stew, so I make sure I buy them without preservatives or additives."
