Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect winter stew! A perfect winter stew! I made it now just because I had beef I didn't know what to do with. So delicious and full of flavor. I added thyme as suggested and this helped. Also, I did have to add salt (to taste) and during the last 15 minutes, I noticed the broth was not very thick so I whisked about 2 TBSP of cornstarch into 1.5 cups of water and added it. This made it super creamy and yummy. I will definitely be making this again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My beef stew my mother taught me is 10x better. My beef stew my mother taught me is 10x better. This is just average. The broth is thin and should be thickened. The bacon doesn't add much flavor but adds grease. The same with the Italian dressing, more oil which it leaves a film in your mouth. The dressing is what you taste most. I just wasn't impressed and my friends and family consider me a chef. Refrigerate the leftovers and you have a layer of grease up top.

I added celery and garlic with the onions, omitted the mushrooms and tomatoes, and used frozen peas, fresh thyme, and a couple bay leaves. I also browned the meat before adding the broth, carrots, and potatoes. I also added some cornstarch at the end to think it up a bit.It was fantastic!! Husband who hates soups and stews ate almost the whole pot!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best beef stew we ever ate! Best beef stew we ever ate! I will make this again and again. My husband isn't a big beef stew fan, but he will eat this one! Thanks! Didn't have the zesty Italian dressing it called for so I used the Northern Italian instead, still came out fantastic!
