- 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
- 1 cup water or red wine
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 pounds beef chuck, fat trimmed, cut in 1-inch to 2-inch cubes
- 3 medium carrots, cut in 1-inch diagonal slices
- 6 white boiling onions or yellow onions, quartered
- 4 medium potatoes, cut in 1-1/2-inch chunks
- 1/2 cup 1-inch celery chunks
- 12 whole large fresh mushrooms
- 2 reduced-sodium beef bouillon cubes
- 1 tablespoon Italian herb seasoning mix or 1 teaspoon each leaf oregano, thyme and rosemary
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 grinds fresh pepper
- Mix together soup, water/wine and flour until smooth; combine the remaining ingredients in covered roasting pan. Bake at 275° for 4-5 hours. When ready to serve, adjust seasoning, if desired. Serve over noodles or with crunchy French bread (to soak up the gravy). Coleslaw is a nice winter accompaniment or serve fresh tomatoes on a bed of lettuce in summer. Yield: 8 servings.
Reviews forGone-All-Day Stew
"I made this for the first time last night (12/7/16). Since it's just my husband and I, I reduced some ingredients (1 lb beef, 1 large yellow onion, 2 large potatoes, 8 oz baby carrots). I also used an 8-oz pkg of whole white mushrooms. I used red cooking wine, and also added some salt & pepper to my flour. I have a 1990's 5-quart crockpot, so I set it on HIGH. My stew was perfectly done in 6 hours. Thank you, Patricia, for sharing this recipe! We enjoyed it, and I will surely make it again!"
"made just as printed w/o mushrooms and celery since I didn't have any (wasn't going out in a snow storm) but I had to add about 2 cups of beef broth. It was really short on liquid and it needs something extra to flavor it up other wise it smelled good while cooking. I used 1/2 c of red wine instead of 1 c."
"Taking longer than the 4-5 hours stated. Vegetables not done-:("
"This was delicious !!! The wine gave it very good flavor. We do not eat beef, so I made it with shawarma and it was perfect. Also I agree with destine about the rudeness of the one star review Just because there is anonymity. Since 19 out of the 20 reviews were rated 4 or 5 stars, the reviewer must have done something wrong."
"This recipe has been in "MY FAVORITE RECIPES" collection for many years and has beenmade many times. It never disappoints. The only difference being that the meat is notbrowned first. However, I have been wanting this wonderful meal lately and will be making it very soon - great dinner for a cool autumn day. I make mine in a blue enamel roasting pan covered in the oven - DELICIOUS!!!!"
"This isn't about the recipe, as I haven't made it. But no matter, I agree with "destine"--"uwasv_waya" is way out of line. What vitriol--over a recipe, of all things. Whoever you are, you need to be on medication."
"Regarding the review by uwasv_waya - I don't understand such rudeness and vitriol over a simple recipe. You're the only one that gave it a negative review. Perhaps you did something wrong that no one else did. If the woman who contributed the recipe were standing right before you would you say what you wrote about her recipe to her face?"
"I haven't tried this one yet, but it is very similar to a beef stew recipe that I have made for many years, that is delicious. I don't understand uwasv_ways review. Maybe it was the worcestershire sauce that spoiled it, considering that the recipe doesn't even call for any worcestershire sauce! I think the reference to what his/her dogs eat and lick was disgusting and uncalled for."
