Hearty Beef & Sweet Potato Stew
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 2 hours

I never review but the majority of these were unhelpful and unfair. I used all listed ingredients, switched up two things: I simmered mushrooms at the beginning before adding broth to get that richness. Roasted veggies alongside stew, almost no additional work, with sage, rosemary and oil. Cooked til just done to bring out sweetness (and bc I was short on time)and added to stew for last half hour. Was the best stew I ever made. No problem with liquid whatsoever but roasting veg makes them shrink. Nothing wrong with carrots with a little bite and I never trusted anyone who threw out a parsnip. For those looking for umami, look no further than the turnips. This was delicious and I’m sure would have been as is. Haters gonna hate. Grow up and eat your root veggies. Great recipe!!!
They didn't print my entire comment. Here it is again.If I can save one person from wasting time
Omitted the mushrooms. Converted it to a slowcooker recipe. Definitely will make it again!
Very disappointed. I used only 1/2 the amount of turnips and parsnips, which was a good thing because we did not like them in the stew and ended up picking them out and throwing them away. We enjoyed the addition of the sweet potatoes and mushrooms though. Overall found the broth too salty and thin. I usually flour the beef before browning, to make a thicker broth in beef stew. I also agree with the other reviewer who pointed out that there is not enough broth to cover the vegetable, so the vegetables did not get as tender as I would have. liked We have a lot left over and no one is looking forward to the leftovers. My husband did not even like it and he usually likes everything, so we will probably throw away the rest. Waste of time and money.
This stew was wonderful and the broth was to die for. My main recommendation is to make one and a half recipes of the broth because the liquid didn't cover everything. My carrots were still a little on the crunchy side. Plus the broth was so good, you can drink it. Serve with toasted French bread and you won't regret it :)
This was great. I made it a little different because of the turnips, parsnips and mushrooms. I instead added extra sweet potatoes and added white potatoes . I actually didn't realize I had ran out of thyme and found out Italian seasoning was a good substitute for it and also had to sub the red white with white. It turned out great.
The sweet potatoes are a fun change of pace, and I also liked the mushrooms. This recipe also transitions well to the slow cooker.
This was ok. I probably wouldn't make it again. I like the idea of sweet potatoes better than regular...
I really liked the sweet and savory flavor of this stew. I did omit the turnips (personal preference), and add some green beans for both bulk and color. Definitely a keeper
Hubby and I really enjoyed this. I really like the addition of sweet potatoes in place of regular white potatoes. I'll make this again.
