    Very good; would make again. Still not the magically perfect beef stew I’m on the hunt for, but certainly no complaints.

    Didn’t have the time for 2 hours of simmering so here’s what I did: browned meat and continued the steps through adding stock in cast iron skillet. Put that mixture in pressure cooker for 20 minutes, added vegetables and pressure cooked for additional 15 minutes. Came out perfect!! Tender beef, veggies done to perfection.

    It came out great! I don’t have alcohol in the home, so I substituted it for 1/4 balsamic vinegar w/ 3/4 water, and it added flavor and deglazed the bottom; you just need acidity. At the end I added half a bag of frozen mixed vegetables I let it simmer for a few hours to get the most flavor and tender meat.

    Absolutely amazing, I did add 3 cloves of garlic chopped real fine, in with the onions. Will be adding this dish into a regular rotation.

    Best beef stew I’ve ever had! It’s my go to recipe and the family loves it.

    It was easy to make with the beef so tender it was falling apart and the sauce being thick, rich and very tasty. I only had 475g of beef so I halved some of the recipe (oil, flour, potatoes) but kept the onions, carrots, celery, peas, spices, wine and broth at the full amount. Turned out fantastic and the house smelled amazing. Served three people no problem

    My first time cooking stew and it turned out wonderfully! Followed the instructions almost exactly - I wasn’t sure if I was meant to keep the same oil in the pot for the onions that I’d used for the meat, but I replaced the oil because it looked kind of gross after frying three batches of meat. I also wasn’t sure if I was meant to stir the stew at all during that first hour of simmering, but my dad said it was okay to stir every now and again, so I stirred it every fifteen minutes to get that film off the top. I really enjoyed this recipe a lot, and my roommate said it was delicious! We can’t wait to eat it throughout the week as leftovers. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us!!! :)

    There was an ingredient I didn’t care for that gave it a funky smell all through the house. It tasted pretty good though.

    I would cook this again. I was only cooking for 2 so a cut the recipe down and it was really good. Meat tender and veggies not over cooked.

    I followed the directions exactly and it turned out like sludge after the first hour. I added 2 more cups of liquid and a little bouillon powder and then it was edible

    Wonderful flavors! Did however substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme instead of fresh and celery flakes instead of stalks. 1 heaping teaspoon.

    We made it using beef chuck roast meat and it was delicious. We cooked the meat in a Fagor pressure pot for 20 min then added the veggies for 10ish min. Then we released the pressure and opened the lid and let it simmer for five minutes. It was perfect and quick.

    This was an excellent stew. I thought it thickened up quite well, for our tastes, following the instructions. It was a little too sweet for our taste, but I had substituted one ingredient I didn't have and that was probably why.

    excellent! flavor profile was very good. instructions were easy to follow. i made couple of adjustments based on my families taste buds. like others, i thickened it as well.

    Was very tasty but a little watery so I added a slurry of cornstarch and water at the end to thicken it up somewhat.
