    My husband and I really enjoyed this. I added some canned mushrooms and used fresh spinach added toward the end of the cooking. It turned out like a stew, I might try adding other veggies and less potatoes to cut down on the carb count. Very Yummy! - 4/13/09

    WOW! This was FABULOUS! I love the spice mixture; perfect for beef.
    The only changes I made were to use only a tsp of oregano, cut the potatoes into bite-size & not add the kale on top til after everything else was done cooking. I put kale on top, covered & let cook til just starting to wilt.

    This was a delicious traditional beef stew. Chard made a great green. Since the stem takes longer to cook than the leafy part, I sliced the stem separately and added it in about 10 minutes before I added the greens. - 11/12/08

    This was very good, just a bit hot (have water handy). It was actually our 1st time having Kale greens and we were all pleasantly surprised. It was even better the next day warming up leftovers. Mine turned out to be 8 (1 cup) servings at 300 calories. - 5/18/09
