Chef's Notes

When making the video for this recipe, the food stylists opted to cook on Low for 8 hours (or High for 4 hours).


  1. An excellent and easy stew recipe. I make minimal changes (I like parsnips, so I add three chopped in place of celery, and I add a little more broth because I like more gravy), but that's about it. This is one of those easy, homey, stick-to-your-ribs recipes. Some of the reviews tick me off: Yes, - Read more ...
  2. I don't understand why Corrine doesn't just post her own recipe for beef stew. The point is to review the given recipe, not list a million changes to it. This stew is perfect AS WRITTEN. If you make any changes, you are not making this recipe for beef stew!!!!
  3. I have been making this stew for almost 3 years and wanted to review it again. Although I'm sure Corinne's suggestions are good, what I like most about this recipe is the simplicity of browning the beef. I've made this over a couple dozen times at least - doubled - and have never had - Read more ...
  4. I made this stew for the first time using Corinne's suggestion. The stew turned out great! The next week, I made the stew following the exact recipe (minus the celery, since I didn't have any); and I must say that the stew turned out EVEN BETTER when following the exact recipe. (Also, I didn't have - Read more ...
  5. I followed Corinnes suggestions and this came out fantastic! The flavor and cosistency were wonderful, and just as good the next day. So you dont have to search for it, here is her suggestion: 1. Increase flour to 1/3 cup and substitute seasoned salt for regular salt. Put flour mixture into gallon-sized, zippered bag. Shake - Read more ...
  6. SUPERB beef stew! I took the great base recipe, and tweaked it with a compilation of reviewer recommendations. The end result is a winner, to be sure. Here is what I did (and I won't change a thing the next time I make it): 1. Increase flour to 1/3 cup and substitute seasoned salt for - Read more ...
  7. I made similar adjustments to previous raters. I dredged the beef in flour/salt/pepper and pan friend until browned in olive oil before adding to the slow cooker. Then I added some butter and onion to the pan and cooked until softened. Next I deglazed the pan with some of the broth being sure to scrape - Read more ...
  8. THIS is a terrific basic recipe!! Nothing to stop you from adding your favorite things - although the TASTE is GREAT just like it is. I used chuck because it's not as dry as a bottom round. I had a tomato so I chopped it up & added it. I saw where someone had added - Read more ...
  9. I have this exact recipe in the recipe booklet that came with my slow cooker! I make it all of the time and my family loves it. I use a packet of dry onion soup mix in place of all the spices, only because it's an easy and convenient way to toss it together.
  10. This just tasted like regular old beef stew to me. Nothing unusual or great about it. My fiance said there was too much meat and not enough vegetables. I'll keep searching for another recipes. I think this would've benefited from a 1/2 c. red wine.
