    I followed the recipe exactly as it said but had no luck thickening it up. It was more like soup than stew. The flavor was good though - 10/18/15

    Very Good
    I'm goign to try this recipe and tweak it a bit, it's very similar to my mother's recipe. The only problem with this is your calculations are wrong... I have no idea how you get 25 servings... the calories are off according to the ingredients and there definitely should be more fiber.... Other than - 9/7/11

    Good stuff. But I noticed the full nutritional breakdown of Slow Cooker Beef Stew calories by ingredient made no mention of the lentils, which for 0.04 cups should add about 27 calories. I left out the potatoes though (it was still plenty thick), so by my reckoning this should be about 100 calories - 1/13/11

    i dredged the meat in the flour and browned it before adding it to the slow cooker. i added the peas (i had frozen) the last hour of cooking so they didn't turn to mush. traded seasoning mix for what i had. garlic, oregano, mrs dash, s/p. never tried beef stew w/ lentils & barley. sounds great! - 12/13/10
