Reviews for Winter Oven Beef Stew
Sort By :
"Wanted to try out my new Dutch oven so found this recipe. Thrilled, we loved the stew, served over egg noodles. I did add 1/4 tspn dry mustard and 1/2 tspn Worchestershire just because they were staring at me on the shelf above the stove and didn't have any thyme in the house. Will definitely make many times this coming cold season. A winner."
"This recipe is super easy and absolutely delicious! I added a little red wine at the end, about 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons of Worcester sauce. My family loved it!"
"Today I will be making this for my third time just this winter. Of all the stew recipes I have tried throughout the years, this one is tops! Definitely a winner in my book!"
"My husband's not typically a stew eater, but he loved the taste the tomatoes gave it. I used diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano in them instead of stewed tomatoes. Will definitely make again"
