I made this for our supper tonight and it was a hit. I didn't have Montreal Steak seasoning so I substituted seasoned salt and it was wonderful. Can't wait to make again on a cool night. As a field editor I have been going through old Taste of Home editions and found this, and I'm so glad I found this recipe because I've never found a beef stew recipe I truly loved until now.
Wonderfully tangy recipe. This is now one of my favorite stews!
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.
