I love the smell throughout the house of food cooking. This slowed cooked beef stew does that as I kick back and wait for the beef and vegetables to be cooked to perfection.
I liked this recipe, however my husband is very picky and he didn't like it with the mushrooms. He liked the flavor but can be funny with mushrooms. I added tabasco sauce for a bit of spice about 5 dashes. Served with mash potato. I added rice on the second meal (bit runny) and added more tabasco sauce about 4 dashes. Better with mash potato, but still nice. If I make again it would be only for me. - 16 Jan 2016
Really tasty. I used my slow cooker so made one or two amendments to the cooking stage but the result was great. A word of advice for slow cooker users though, the water content is too much and will turn out a bit runny. I would suggest using about half the suggested water and add more if you need to. Dont change anything else though, its great. - 07 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Very tasty recipe, however I felt I should add an onion and cubed potato! - 04 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
