    This was a really good beef stew recipe! The only thing I changed was I doubled the beef broth and added a cup of frozen peas. My kids demolished it. 😁

    Really yummy! I only had to add a little water but it didn't effect the flavor much.

    it was delicious! I had to add at least 4 more cups of water/stock after I added all the veggies. i also added Worcester sauce and garlic! Delish and plenty of leftovers 😋

    One comment stated that they used coconut flour and the flavor was off. Try a little cornstarch next time to avoid the flour. As far as liquid being too little of an amount, add a quart of water or a combo of water and another can of broth to measure a quart, and that will be more than enough. Also, you can add this additional liquid when you add your vegetables to just cover them. As far as the vegetables not being cooked, I’ve found that if I microwave root vegetables for about 2 minutes before adding them to soups and stew, they come out perfect. Hope some of this is helpful. I love this recipe. My husband tries to get me to make it every week!

    the flavor was good but 2 1/2 hours is not enough time to fully cook everything.

    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.

    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! 🎉
