Very delicious & easy. I used only 2 lbs of stew meat & a large jar of mushrooms. Will definitely make this again!

Made this as a beef stew; flavor was rich but my husband didn't love it and leftovers didn't disappear quickly

This was delicious and so easy. Smelled so good cooking when I came home from work. I didn't add the cornstarch--forgot, but it was still delicious. Will make this often.

This was absolutely delicious. I have made this several times and my family loves it. I've made it with and without the red wine, just used additional beef brock and the taste is great either way.

I actually don't add the cornstarch or water to make a gravy. I use the juice to cook my rice in instead of serving beef over noodles.1 cup of rice to 2 cups of liquid-It comes out perfect every time!

I made this recipe with 2 lbs of stew meat and it was still plenty. It cooked for about 12 hours because i had a long day at work! Its was fabulous. I also added 2 beef boullion cubes to add more flavor.
