A good base for a beef stew
This recipe definitely is a good base for a beef stew. Only thing I would do differently is add some garlic powder(or fresh garlic), oregano, cumin powder, and a little less soya sauce. The tomatoe sauce and beef broth combined needs to be seasoned with garlic, oregano and cumin before pouring it over the whole stew in order to add an even flavour throughout. I also added some diced celery also for added flavour. Lastly I made it in 5 hours on high so I believe the timing was noted wrong on the recipe. Overall a great recipe.
Made the stew mostly according to recipe ingredients and instructions. The changes I made were that I added baby potatoes and baby peeled carrots to the stew to save time on peeling the vegetables. I added a small amount of red wine to the broth to equal the broth measurement. Not sure if it was the wine or the broth, but next time I will use beef bouillon instead for added flavour. Had to add some garlic and more seasonings because stew didn't have as much flavour when it was done.
Looks like a good, simple recipe but I will reverse the high and low cook times.
Instructions on Cook Time
Think maybe Time for cooking is listed wrong / should probably be Low Longer Cook Time?
I have made this recipe twice in my 2.5 qt casserole crockpot. It is very easy to prepare and is delicious. It gets done for me in four hours on high. The only thing I do differently is flour and brown the meat. It's my preference. Every bit of this dish gets eaten and that is saying a lot for me.
I don't have time to cook but this was a really easy recipe. Has a great flavor also.
