It is easy to put together. It's good to eat. The only change I would have made is to add 1 more carrot, potato, and onion. All I had to add to the supper to make it complete was some baking powder biscuits and a salad. I will definitely be making this again. .
I have made this stew many time it is delicious I double the recipe because it is great!
I replaced the peas with half a pound of mushrooms added to the slow cooker at the same time as the meat. I also mixed half a cup of pinot noir with the flour instead of water, and served it over buttered egg noodles. Big hit, great recipe.
Our family heritage recipe for the last 50 years! Great!The old recipe included bisquick drop dumplings mixed with marjoram and dropped on the cooking beef stew to plump up into dumplings!!! Oh! So! Good!
I have had the pleasure of making this stew every other week in the winter for my family for the past four years! They love it, it's so easy to make, and I am always complimented on it.
This is a very yummy stew. I used 1/2 cup of red wine and four as well, and it was perfect!
This is very easy and great stew! I can put this together in 15 minutes and be out the door in the morning. I don't add water to the flour and use 1/2 cup of red wine instead...adds a lot more flavor.
Super easy to make and it is delicious. An old time favorite - great with fresh bread out of the oven!

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
