    Great recipe; I didn't use the same portions and just guesstimated the amount of seasonings but used the same ingedients and was definitely a hit. Served over rice. No leftovers tonight! 🎉

    Added more broth like others stated. But still needed more flavor. Will definitely try again.

    Added double the broth and a tablespoon of Italian seasoning with the vegetables. Also stirred in two tablespoons of cornstarch and water to thicken it up and it turned out great

    This was very good, but with the modifications suggested by previous reviewers. I used more broth (900ml), added 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic & frozen peas. I also only used half the amount of meat & did have to thicken it a bit more with the usual mix of cornstarch & water.

    Meh, This Recipe was a good starting point but fairly bland and not enough liquid. I added quite a bit more broth, 1 tsp of Bouillon, 3 cloves of Garlic (minced) and 1 cup of dry Red Wine

    Easy to make but I needed to add extra broth. I added some garlic and some frozen peas.

    Needs 2 cans of broth. I added garlic because the base recipe looked rather bland. Should have added more.

    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.
