My family *loves* this recipe and it is so easy! I usually throw all of the ingredients in the crock pot and walk away.-17 Apr 2007

This dish was great! I added a bag of frozen veggies to it so it would be more then just meat and potatoes. I also cooked it longer for more flavor. Very good!-22 May 2006


This is one of my favorite beef stews. That curry adds an exotic zing! I love the flavor and nutrient value of swapping out the white potatoes for all sweet potatoes or a mix of sweet potatoes and turnips (equals more nutrients and lower glycemic effect than white potatoes). As another reviewer suggested, I also like to add a thickner for that real stew quality. (Personally, I always prefer using white or even better, whole wheat pastry flour for my thickner to lower the glycemic effect - something even us non-diabetics benefit from health wise. Of course, whenever one uses wheat flour compared to cornstarch, you must take some liquid out, add it to the flour, and then add the mixture to the stew.)-07 Nov 2007
