I love crock pot meals and this one turned out quite nicely. A nice home cooked type meal, had it with crunchy homemade bread and a salad. I followed the recipe according to directions - I used 2 cups beef stock. It turned out slightly runny, next time I might cut back on the beef stock.

This was so easy to put together, and was a real winner with DH. My stew meat package was only 1 1/4 lbs, so I added some summer squash and other veggies to make up the bulk. I used one cup of broth and one cup of wine, and next time I think I might try changing the ratio a bit to increase the broth but keep the rich flavor of the wine. Thanks for posting; I know we will make this one again. Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.

Super stew!! I used stewing beef and cut the recipe back to 1/3 (but left the beef broth at the original amount) and it still served 2 adults/2 kids we have left overs. I switched up the veggies, omitted the potatoes because I wanted to serve over mashed potatoes, added mushrooms and green pepper and also omitted the beans. I cooked on high for 3 hours and on low for 1.5 hours. I added a slurry of flour/water to thicken the sauce.We were all raving about this meal and it will for sure be repeated. Made for ZWT 8

For allergy reasons I omitted the celery and onion and upped the potato and carrot and added a parsnip. Used 1.4K of meat and at the end of 8 hours the gravy was thick and luscious and shone like silk. I also cut my vegetables chunky (about the same size as I cut meat big bite size and served with some penne pasta and slices of buttered wholegrain sauce to mop up that wonderful gravy. Could easily have served 8 to 10 and looking forward to making pies with some of leftovers. Thanks **Jubes**, made for Edition 8 - Make My Recipe.

Great family friendly casserole which was enjoyed by the whole family. Nice to be able to put it on in the morning and come home to a filling dinner at night. I served on toast. Thanks Jubes.

This turned out really well. I used deer meat actually, and it was good. It was perfect for our snowy evening!

I made this, because it was cold. The next day we had 80 degrees. It was still a very good recipe. I used only beef stock and added the wine as an extra, otherwise cooked as written. It did take about 7 hours on high to cook, but I think it was because of the added liquid.

This is a terrific dish, and it couldn't be easier! I used beef and omitted the wine for a great family friendly dinner. I served it with crusty rolls and my family couldn't get enough. Terrific for a cold winter's evening meal. Thanks for posting! Made for Aussie Swap :)
