Solid recipe, filling and warming. However, felt like it needed something else. Would obviously be easy to add an additional veggie or meat to jazz it up next time. Great recipe for a cold winter night.

After reading the reviews, I added garlic & the corn starch(didn't have the tapioca). Put everything in the crockpot on low and went to work. When I got home, turned it to high since my potatoes needed more cooking after 6 hrs. That did the trick. Hubby loved it. Will make again!!

Flavor was ok but I had to add much more liquid and finish in the oven for an hour and a half before it was done, Won't make again!

I made this last night and added corn starch instead of tapioca because that was what I had. I also added dried thyme because it seemed a little bland. It came out delicious and I loved how the meat just fell apart. Next time I want to add a little red pepper and garlic just to give it a kick, but other than that I would not change a thing.

This was awesome!!! I did not use the tapioca or the tomatoes as I do not like them. I did double the recipe because I used a 3# chuck roast instead of stew meat. I took a few of the potatoes and a scoop of the veggies and put it in the blender with some of the beef broth and made my own gravy to pour over it all. It was delicious. I will be making again!!!
