    Altered ingredient amounts. This is a great variation of beef stew. The walnuts add a little crunch, the flavour is fabulous and the meat was so tender. I thought the amount of mushrooms and walnuts seemed like a lot, so I used less, but I'm sure it's great either way. I would also recommend at least a 1/2 tsp. of pepper. - 29 Sep 2008


    Really great flavour. That's a LOT of meat though. - 29 Sep 2008


    We did not care for this. Too many walnuts gave it an off flavour. - 29 Sep 2008
