Reviews forHearty Ground Beef Stew
"We thought this was just ok, nothing amazing. The only thing I did differently was lower the amount of carrots and add in some celery. It just needed something. Worcestershire sauce maybe? More spices? I don't know. It wasn't bad by any means, but I wasn't really impressed either. I used my Instant Pot slow cooker setting, put it on high for 3.5 hours, then "medium" for 1 hour. There are other recipes I like better, so I don't think I'll be making this one again."
"Tried this recipe because it called for many things I already had at the time. It was SO delicious! My boyfriend absolutely loved it! Thank you so much for sharing. Will definitely be using this recipe time and time again!"

"This dish was a huge hit. My 13 mth. old just loved it. I have made beef stew on the stove top many times. This recipe was excellent. Loved being able to do something new with ground beef. I used beef broth instead of water, other than that I followed the recipe to the word. Definite make again meal."
