  • Very Good
    Very easy.
    Traditional beef stew as advertised.
    I'll try to add Italian seasoning next time.

  • O.K.
    Agreed, seemed to be missing something flavorwise. Was thinking red wine also for some body, it was a little bland. Aldo, watch your slow cooker size! Mine has always been big enough for recipes, but this overflowed it. Will have to half the recipe next time. - 1/17/14
