    This was my first attempt at beef stew and I was very happy with the outcome! I skipped the celery and added carrots, corn, and green beans, and used about 5 red potatoes. I only had a can of whole tomatoes so I cut them up a bit. Very versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing! - 12/29/08

    I was amazed at how much flavor there was, given this is a very simple recipe!
    I did brown the stew meat before putting in the crock pot, I am not sure if that makes a difference or not, but either way- this was A HUGE HIT!! - 10/29/08

    Hey, I just wanted to let everybody know that the picture doesn´t do this dish justice.....I just made it and I took a picture, the one on the blue plate, and it looks much better than the picture, it has more tomato than it seems to in the picture and the thyme and rosemary gave it a great taste. - 12/12/11

    I made this tonight and used sweet potatoes instead of white because I was out of white. I was really surprised at how much I liked it. I may leave the celery out next time though. - 2/13/08

    I made this and I used my left overs from a pot roast that I usually end up tossing. I know it was a hit because I didn't have any left in the pot. I didn't have to cook it as long because everything was already pre cooked.
    PS. Thanks for the picture! - 12/7/07

    Wow! I really liked this, my kids and picky husband did as well. I did have to cut up the tomatoes a bit before i added them- i just used kitchen shears to snip them up while still in the can. GREAT flavor! thanks for the recipe!!! - 9/14/07

  • Great recipe! I would have used beef stock instead of water but didn't have any so I used a can of healthy beef barley soup with a can of water. Added fresh garlic and tons of veggies including kale, poblano peppers, and red pepper along with recommended veggies. Deserves 5 stars! - 2/10/14

  • I write recipe reviews for my blog, The GOOD Pins, and came across this recipe on Pinterest. Its so simple yet exactly what I was looking for. The seasoning scared me, as I am not good at "to taste" so I actually found a seasoning mix that went perfect! Thanks for helping me find a great dinner! - 6/25/13

  • This dish was fabulous! The picture doesn't do it justice. I added carrots. My boys gobbled it up and they are picky eaters. - 5/9/13

  • This recipe is very good, however I used 1/2 cup beef broth with the flour instead of the water which adds more flavor and maybe a bit more calories. - 2/13/13

  • We made this tonight and it was yummy and very nice on a cold, fall day. It makes a lot. It's easily 6-7 servings...if not more. We took 1-cup servings and had it with biscuits. We added a can of corn to the mix. Yum! - 10/30/12
