I love this recipe! I have been making it since it came out! I clipped it and filed it because it is so good. Very little changes now and then.

This was good! I accidentally doubled the pepper and it was still good. I did add maybe 3/4 cup wine and extra water to cover the potatoes when those were added. Will make again though. Oh, and I cut the onion to just one because I don't like loads of cooked onion in a dish.

So I made this recipe last night, I had an issue with all f the liquid evaporating and had to add beef broth. Also I added corn and celery into the mix, the flavors were amazing. Definitely going to use this recipe again! Oh and my husband loved it!

My husband's review was "This is a manly stew!" We both enjoyed this. Like other reviewers, though, I added beef broth because otherwise there wasn't enough liquid.
