    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
