    Reviewed Basic Beef Stew

    "Precise cooking time. It works and we were pressed for time. This is as basic as it could be and turned out flavorful. A straightforward, accurate recipe. We didnt change anything. Other reviewers might want to extend cooking time for the beef to make it even tender, but as it is, it was VERY OKAY. Thank you for sharing, PanNan !"

    "This recipe saved the day for me. I cant get Old Bay Seasoning in Germany and had lots of leftover seafood in the fridge to use. It added just the right amount of oomph to the chowder. Thank you so much for sharing !"

    "This recipe is amazing. We have tried other seafood recipes calling for a long list of seafood ingredients, but this one produces exactly the same flavor using only the following seafood - crab, baby clams and shrimps. Living in Germany where we have to go to special gourmet stores to obtain expensive seafood, this was such a blessing for all 3 s..."

    "This recipe appears to be a modern adaptation of an Iberian recipe - quite a good modernization of the original. To make it spicier, use a Spanish spicy chorizo or if you cant find one, a cabanossi. I also added peppercorns and a bay leaf like the original ones. This is a good recipe to use when running short of time in producing beef broth. I f..."

    "For the same reason as Roosie stated in her review, the ingredients of this recipe are all good, but this Moosewood/Mollie Katzen recipe tastes bland. One needs to add 2 cups chicken or beef broth.When we did this, at first we didnt want to alter anything in such a good-looking low fat soup, but sadly without the addition of broth, it was ve..."

    "Perfect !!! I have tasted many Chinese restaurant copycat recipes for braised beef, but this one has the perfect mix of Chinese wine and anise. I wouldnt change a thing even the coriander (cilantro). When using beef chunks instead of pork chops, boil the beef beforehand till tender, using any beef broth recipe and use the broth for this recipe. Th..."

    "Restaurant quality recipe. Took me a long time to try this recipe after Chia shared it but I�m very thankful she did. Dont ever skip the cinnamon and anise. Top with minced parsley. For variation, sprinkle a few salted Chinese black beans sold in packs in Asian stores (taw-shu). Thanks a lot for sharing, Chia."

    "This is a hearty winter soup and makes a wonderful meal for those who are sick. It is important to remember to remove the ginger because as we found out, had we left the ginger in the casserole, its taste would have overpowered the spinach and shrimp. We added chicken pieces as well to make it a one-dish meal. We also added 2 teaspoons of fish sau..."
