I noticed the recipe had NO spices listed. I did some tweeking to give it more flavor by adding salt and pepper, garlic, Fine Herbs seasoning, catsup, and worcestershire sauce. I used beef broth instead of water, and Wondra flour instead of tapioca. I also added 1 turnip, 1 green pepper, and 3 parsnips because that is what I use in a stovetop version of mine. I checked it after 2 hours and added some more beef broth, and 10 minutes before the end of baking, I sprinkled in the Wondra flour. After the tweeking it was very good and I will make it again.

oh so good! I didn't have tapioca on hand so just used flour - it was great.

Meat is super tender, the gravy is the perfect consistency, this is really good. I added some sliced cremini mushrooms and used a can of fire-roasted tomatoes for the diced tomatoes, and it is just tasty!
