About this recipe: This easy, comforting beef stew is perfect for those cold winter evenings. After quickly browning chunks of beef, everything gets tossed in a slow cooker to simmer all day long.
This stew was very good and had the right amount of each ingredient, except the thyme. I put 5 sprigs of fresh thyme instead of the 1 recommended and still thought it was bland. Next time I will add a lot more and maybe some other spices. Or perhaps an additional Tbsp of dried thyme. The meat came out very tender and delicious. I will make this again, but with more spices and probably in the winter. Thanks Camping Girl! - 24 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really delicious but you have to be 21 to buy all of the ingredients! The better the browning, the tastier the stew definitely holds true in this recipe and the long slow cooking takes the edge off of the beer and gives the stew a marvelous flavor! - 22 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
As written this would have been bland for us. I mixed the flour with a lot of my low salt cajun seasoning and pepper. I also used a lot more fresh thyme, taking it out when ready to eat. Added about 4 big cloves of fresh, minced garlic. I also cooked the stew meat and then added the beer (without draining) hoping some of the bitter beer flavor would cook off.
