  • Loved this beef stew recipe!! - 3/31/14

  • Enjoyed the thyme in the stew. Found it a bit too saucy. I would reduce the boullion which would mean less flour for thickening. - 1/11/13

  • I completely forgot the bay leaf, but it was really good! Ate it over 1/2 cup of brown rice. OMG. This is a keeper. The only thing is I did have to add water. there wasn't much in there whenI checked it before putting in the flour. But recipe is fantastic! - 7/29/11

  • Had no bay leaf - added 1 tsp sage instead. Chopped up 4 small- medium potatoes, and 1 medium onion (which I sauted) as I didn't have the canned potatoes with onions. Also stirred in 1/2 cup of tomato sauce leftover from another recipe. Took this to my parents for supper; everyone enjoyed it! - 4/6/11
