I made this recipe yesterday and served it to guests (as I have done in the past). They enjoyed it very much as the others did also. Yum!! And . . . I shall make it again and again.
I tried this recipe just as it was printed but in a crock pot for an all day cooking on a cold day. It was wonderful to come home to. The parsnips have a tangy flavor-I wasn't sure how'd they be in the stew but the whole combination was great. I did the recipe as shown, tasted it after hours and hours of cooking and then added a can of low fat mushroom soup to thicken it.
The receipe have a specified flavor. The red currant jelly, appealing to the taste. Succulent receipe.
I made this with venison, and it is incredible. Red wine is preferred to beef broth, and red currant jelly shouldn't be left out or substituted. Wonderful in a slow cooker too.
