  • “We enjoyed this wonderful, hearty, stew.I made it exactly as it was written.The bay leaves and rosemary were just the right combination.The next layer of flavor came from the red wine.Thanks for posting this wondrful recipe.I will make it again.”

  • “Turned out quite well for us but with a few adjustments.We browned the meat separately after a dusting of flour/seasoning.We used chopped fresh tomatoes instead of canned.We also used mushrooms (1 cup), more garlic and needed 3 cups of stock.Would definitely make this again (maybe with green beans instead of peas).”

  • “This was very good. I used dried rosemary instead of fresh.I also forgot to put in the flour at the end.It wasn’t runny; it was actually quite good without it! Yum!”

  • “Very good!I made this in the crock pot, cooking it on high for 5-6 hours.I also used venison, and I added a can of cream of mushroom soup instead of the flour”

  • “Superior flavor in this stew! Threw all of this in the crockpot (no sauteing) and very much enjoyed the result 6 hours later.Loved the herb combination. I skipped the thickening process and won’t change another thing next time.”

  • “Yum. I cheated a bit and used some leftover roast with carrots, celery, and potatoes Loved the flavor of this and will be making it again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.”

  • “Made half a recipe and it was very good.Didn’t add the peas until the last 10 min. as I didn’t want them over done.”

  • “I threw everything in the slow cooker and when I went to bed and in the morning the whole house smelled wonderful. My BF took it to work for lunch and ate almost an entire thermos of it by himself (very BIG thermos)! He said it was 5 star outstanding. Thank you!”
