Reviews for Zesty Beef Stew
"Delicious! The stew beef comes out very tender and the pizza sauce provides extra kick. I added 1/4 teaspoon of granulated garlic."
"Sorry, tried it twice. Really wanted it to work. Maybe I went too cheap on the beef? We genuinely enjoyed the barley."
"I did add two tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar to this and other than that, I thought it was the best beef stew that I've had."
