    This turned out pretty good! I took out the seanson-all because the added salt was too much. If I make it again, ill triple the broth/water, there wasnt enough for leftovers.

    Turned out great! This was my first time preparing beef and even my little brother found it delicious. A couple modifications I made: added about 3-4 tablespoons soy sauce, majoram instead of thyme, and two cloves garlic. Thumbs up!!

    By far the very best beef stew recipe I’ve had. I’m adding this to my personal book for sure. However i didn’t have seasoning salt so I used creole seasoning. Also added garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper the meat prior to frying.

    Turned out awesome! I added carrots and mushrooms to the recipe. Add the carrots after about 45 min of simmering the broth and beef. I also did canned diced potatoes and they were perfect.

    Quite good, actually. Even so despite the lack of proper beef broth, which is unavailable in my country.

    Delicious! I made this for my family and some friends, and they kept going back for more! I didn't simmer the meat for 1.5 hours. I added the seasonings, vegetables, and broth, boiled it for 10 minutes, then simmered it for 25-30 minutes, and it came or perfect! the vegetables were so tender and full of flavor. I would recommend making biscuits with it, it's a great pair!!

    This is a good stew. The next time I make it I will use less salt.
