Reviews for Tangy Beef and Vegetable Stew
"recipe sounds good but for my taste there would be no peas or corn (altho favorites but not in beef stew) plus the vinegar/mustard/horseradish sounds off to me....sorry don't think I'll be trying this recipe"
"This stew just did not do it for our family. It just came out bitter tasting. We love horseradish so I don't think it was that but more likely the combination of the vinegar and the mustard. I ended up adding twice as much sugar and some beef gravy to take away the tart taste and salvage the 4 pounds of stew meat. It's just a matter of taste and I knew the sour flavor just wasn't going to fly with my kids."
"I make this stew fairly often during the colder months. It is hands down the best stew you will ever eat!"
"YUMMY! Very easy, good flavor and it makes a lot. I didn't change a thing. Great recipe."
"Best Beef Stew I've ever had. Wouldn't change a thing!"
"Great, I added some green chilis"
