    The meat was so tender and you did not taste wild in the stew at all. The only thing I'm going to do different next time will be add 1/2 of the onions in the beginning then add the carrots 5 minutes before the potatoes and the rest of the onions. Great stew.  -  08 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make and I served it over brown rice. The family loved it  -  05 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This one's a keeper and a good base recipe for experimentation. We reduced the onion to 1/2 and added a bit of cumin, oregano, and 3-4 stalks of celery.  -  02 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
