This stew was o.k. It is hearty and filling, i will give it that. But it had little flavor and there was certainly nothing special about it. I really don't understand how it won a blue ribbon.

I'm not a stew person, but this was absolutely delicious. I also substituted 1 1/2 pound stew meat for the ground beef. I just cut it up into small pieces. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

I cut this meat and potato stew recipe in half for two people and used ground turkey instead of beef. Used unpeeled, red potatoes choppped. We added hot sauce at the table as desired and this recipe was perfect. Had leftovers. Will definitely prepare again and again.

This stew was Terrific!!!! The only thing my husband added was 5-6 dashes of Chipotle Tabasco Sauce. Hit the spot.~~Thank you
