MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2014

"Flavor was ok but I had to add much more liquid and finish in the oven for an hour and a half before it was done, Won't make again!"

"I made this last night and added corn starch instead of tapioca because that was what I had. I also added dried thyme because it seemed a little bland. It came out delicious and I loved how the meat just fell apart. Next time I want to add a little red pepper and garlic just to give it a kick, but other than that I would not change a thing."

"This was awesome!!! I did not use the tapioca or the tomatoes as I do not like them. I did double the recipe because I used a 3# chuck roast instead of stew meat. I took a few of the potatoes and a scoop of the veggies and put it in the blender with some of the beef broth and made my own gravy to pour over it all. It was delicious. I will be making again!!!"
