    it was good. but, flavor was an little off. this could have been because i used coconut flower instead of regular flour due to wife's food allergy.

    Really good simple recipe. I enjoyed the ease of it. I didn’t have to watch it every second, which was nice. The meat cooking first made it very very tender by the time it came to serving the stew. Took the advice of others and added a cup or two more fluid when I added the vegetables. Then I did make a flour slurry to thicken the gravy. And added a little season salt and cayenne to spice it slightly. This recipe will be added to my recipe box for future cold winter night dinners. Love it.

    Turned out great. Really easy to follow and hard to mess up.

    Very yummy. I did 2 onions instead of 4 just because of the size of my pan. Id recommend 3 or 4 onions if you can fit them. Id definitely make this again.

    It really is the same beef stew I usually make. I wanted to know how you make it. The main difference was I put Marsala in the pan after I sauté the onions. Then the beef broth... There are several different recipes I could have chosen but when time is important this is a great meal.

    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.
