Reviews for Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Stew
"This recipe was not very good. It came together okay, but there was no flavor at all. So bland. I won't be making this again."
"Great recipe! I used beef broth in place of the hot water and bouillon granules and soy sauce instead of the browning sauce, since I didn't have that on hand. Loved how this made the house smell while it was in the slow cooker! Leftovers also freeze very well for quick meals later on. Delicious!"
"Fantastic - house smelled amazing! Light brown on meat to start and used 2 cans consomme in place of water/granules and no carrots or peas (family preference)). Did first hour on high followed by 4 on low and textures of meat and veggies was perfect! Thanks for sharing!"
"I made this on Sunday. It only took 13 minutes to throw together. I even placed the meat in frozen and did not cube it up. I also omitted the peas (my husband is not a fan), browning sauce (only because I did to have this on hand) and the cornstarch slurry (only because we forgot). My husband really liked the added touch of the Worcestershire sauce."
"Was good, made exactly as stated, cept a little bit more cornstarch"
"It was great!! I made this according to the recipe, but it seems I could have used a little more cornstarch - the gravy wasn't as thick as I had hoped. I plan to make it again for sure."
"EXCELLENT!I didn't bother with the cornstarch and water, I was too hungry to care if it was thick. lol"
"I made the recipe almost exactly as given and it was great. It made plenty so I will have leftovers or freeze some up for later. I served it with hot cornbread and butter and it was a perfect winter feast. Due to other reviews commenting on the amount of cornstarch I did use 1/3 cup instead of the 1/4 cup. The sauce was the perfect thickness for a stew. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand and make again."
"I had some trouble with the thickening like one of the other reviewers, but the next day, perfect!! A definite keeper."
