    This is a great variation of beef stew. The walnuts add a little crunch, the flavor is fabulous and the meat was so tender. I thought the amount of mushrooms and walnuts seemed like a lot, so I used less, but I'm sure it's great either way. I would also recommend at least a 1/2 tsp. of pepper.  -  21 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is WONDERFUL! The peppers may disintegrate (I made it peppers pretty much melted, green peppers held shape) but it doesn't change the great flavor of the recipe! 2lbs of chuck steak does not seem excessive to me (as noted by another reviewer) considering the recipe is for EIGHT servings.  -  12 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really great flavor. That's a LOT of meat though in ratio to the other ingredients. So, 8 servings or 2 servings... this is A LOT of meat -- really less like a stew that I would eat straight out, and more like an entree that should be served over rice or something (to level out the meat overdose!)  -  26 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
