This Stew was hearty and delicious. The flour from the beef made the soup very think with almost a gravy like consistency. In the future, I think I will skip the flour step.
Didnt have any zucchini so threw in a few over veggies, good taste
Followed the recipe as written. Mine turned out quite soupy and the zucchini was mushy. Next time I think I will cut back on the crushed tomatoes and beef broth a bit and put the zucchini in when the tortellini and spinach is added.
We really enjoyed this and would make it again. The only problem was the tortellini got a bit mushy when reheating the leftovers, but that is to be expected I suppose. Nice & hearty!
This was absolutely fantastic. Such a hearty dish full of wonderful veggies. I didn't experience problems at all. The meat was so tender and the pasta and veggies were perfect. Definitely a keeper!!
The flavors in this dish were great, and I loved the combination of tortellini and beef. However, the beef stew meat that I used didn't get quite as tender as desired - I think I prefer the beef stew chunks to have a longer cooking time, perhaps in the slow cooker. Regardless, this was a tasty combination of veggies, meat, and pasta, and made for a delicious hearty dinner.
This was a very rich and hearty stew, perfect for a cold winter night. It was a perfect "all in one" meal with the assortment of vegetables, the pasta and the beef cubes. The only problem I had was that mine burned a little on the bottom of my Dutch oven. I think I will need to reduce the simmering time by about 15 minutes on my stove. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed the dish and would make it again!
