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.

Substituted beer for part of beef broth.

Family loved! Had to use way more then two potatoes for my family and didn't include the peas due to picky eaters. Will use again!

Was quite nice. Used 1kg of meat and also added some minced garlic. Thought it may need some red wine to lift the flavours a bit. My family enjoyed this and scored it a 9/10. Thanks for a lovely recipe.

Excellent taste! My husband kept saying, “Wow! This is great!” I thickened it a little more, but otherwise made no changes! I’ll definitely make it again!

Great recipe! Slow cooking is great but it can be made a lot healthier. Instead of a crockpot, I used MEC pure clay pot for this recipe. It cooked a lot faster and the flavor was all natural and enhanced. You should try that and I promise you'd never cook in a crockpot again.

We served it with garlic bread and it was hearty and satisfying. However, it just wasn't anything special enough for me to want to make again.

I think this would be very good over a bed of rice !
