Excellent! I used red wine also because I believe if it’s not good enough too drink it’s not good enough too cook with. Also I used a Dutch oven instead of crock pot at 275* for 3.5 hours. Very good recipe!

very good! followed recipe exactly, used regular red wine instead of cooking wine. i did not find it to be too salty.

Good overall dish. Adjusted the seasonings for less salt in the chicken broth and the bacon. The prep time was longer if you are following the directions. It’s more like 45 minutes and not 20.

It was really good! Maybe a little too much thyme, but overall it was delicious.

i fallowed directions to a t but it just didn't have a wow flavor i expected
Gross. I would have given it 0 stars if I could
Very delisious. Great for the winter time
So yummy! I added some capsicum to the slow cooker. Added rosemary salt and lots of pepper to the beef before browning it. Also added 2 bay leaves. This was absolutely a winner.

That was absolutely delicious

Fantastic. Searing the beef chunks I think is key to keeping in the moisture. Also.. I have had trouble with slow cooker beef chunks not drying out so I got the chunk strips instead of the packaged cubes.! I think that was a difference maker. Meal was great!

This will be the 3rd time. it is great.

I've had better beef stews. Suggest to put thyme in to taste 2 tbsp way too much!!
This was edible but we wont make it again. the tomatoes with beef made it acidic and gave it a tanginess that i dont like with stew. I tried this for something new but will go back to my old beef stew recipe.

It was tender and it had flavor, but my family wasn't too thrilled. Not bad, but I think I will skip making it again.
Yum...I would make again. I used cab red wine and added 1/4 cup more than directed and added 10 pearl onions

Ended up a little overcooked but i think thats my slow cooker being to hot on low
Delish. I used a Syrah for the wine. I also quartered the mushrooms. Great flavor. I wouldn't change a thing and will make it again! It was a big hit with everyone!
Awesome. Perfect with a glass of red and fresh bread on a cold night.
Absolutely delicious, but quite salty. I didn't salt the meat, so the bacon must have added a lot more salt than anticipated. Used portobello mushrooms instead of button mushrooms. Will make again, probably with half the bacon to reduce the saltiness.

So flavorful! Usually my slow cooker recipes aren’t great but this was perfect! Will definitely make this again :-)

Turned out pretty well. I used ground beef instead and still tasted good.
