This recipe was absolutely amazing. My family ate it once and asked if I could make it next week. I don't think I have had that request for stew that was not my own recipe. I will keep this recipe, it is definitely a keeper.

I made this tonight, although I changed it a bit with the V8 which I did not have, I made my own. I left out the celery because my daughter hates celery. I also used 1 1/2 lbs of stew meat and added two small potatoes more. Otherwise I used the seasonings in the recipe. It turned out really good. I will make this again.

This is the ONLY beef stew my daughter will eat. I don't put in the celery and I use my own homemade tomato juice for more flavor. Turns out tender every time. I do add a bit more cornstarch because I like a thicker stew. All in all, this is so worth making.

This came together easy, I used low-sodium juice to reduce the sodium levels a bit. Very good!

I thought this recipe was ok. but I wouldn't be making it again. It definitely needs more thickening than the recipe calls for and the flavors were just bland.
