Not much flavor, but will try again adding additional herbs & spices. Prep was very easy.

Very good family-friendly weeknight meal. We added 1/2 cup water and 1/2 TSP pepper to the sauce. It was tasty, but we would still like it a bit more flavorful. Next time I will add more spices.

This was very good! Fast and easy, too. I did make a few changes in ingredients--I don't like cooked celery, and I wanted more color, so added some peas and corn for that, but that just proves this is a good recipe to follow exactly or use as a "jumping off point." Being able to have a hearty stew ready in about 30 minutes is great for weeknights.

This is one of my "go to" recipes. All my guys love it; make it in summer as well as in cool weather as it cooks on stove top rather than heating the oven. I have added extra broth/stock too & altered cook-time to assure veggies are tender, as other reviewers have indicated. Been making it for years and will keep on making it because, as my husband says: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Very good. Will be making it again and again. Read reviews and used a whole can of low sodium chicken broth but kept ketchup and cornstarch amounts the same.Used fresh thyme & sage. My 8yr old wants it again tomorrow!

Great Recipe. I added some poultry seasoning for a little extra flavor. My family requested this stew again.

This recipe was sooooo good! I doubled the broth recipe and let it cook a little longer. The potatoes were still a bit hard I like them a bit more tender but other than that I highly recommend. It's really easy and quick to make, plus I had all of the ingredients at hand.

Great for a fall day. I simmered it for 40 minutes and some carrots and potatoes were still aldente. Great flavor. I served it with fresh bread.
