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.

Yum! Used ground turkey, chicken broth instead of water, omitted tomato soup. Used 4 potatoes, added 2 stalks of chopped celery and half a chopped onion.I put everything in all at once, instead of stirring in the tomato paste in the last hour.Healthy and tasty, doesn't even need a side dish!

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.

Awesome! So easy. I didn't have onion soup mix so I used an onion and a container of beef broth (instead of water). Left out the tomato paste. Next time I will put in some sliced mushrooms. My oldest son is in the living room asking for the recipe!

Looking at a related video using fresh garlic,I love to use garlic in a lot of my recipes and would like to know how and where to store fresh garlic so that it will last longer.
