I've made this since i got my first BHG cookbook many eons ago. If you dredge the meat in flour before browning it, it makes its own gravy. I also add 1 Tbsp salt and 1 tsp sugar (per original recipe) and it's perfectly seasoned. I also add some frozen peas .
I also add 8 oz. of tomato juice to mine. I add the 1/8 tsp. allspice plus the 1/8 tsp.ground cloves the original recipe called for. Then I add some Kitchen Bouquet. NEXT about 2 Tablespoons of beef Better Than Bullion (BTB). Make sure there is enough liquid per teaspoon of the BTB. 1 Cup per teaspoon. YUMMY! !!!
I also add an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce. The original recipe called for 1/8 tsp. allspice and 1/8 tsp. ground cloves. Very tasty. I also add some kitchen bouquet and about 2 Tablespoons of beef Better Than Bullion. !!
This is the best beef stew I've ever made. Numbers of people have asked for the recipe; even men request it for their wives! The allspice is a surprise ingredient, and I usually add double (1/4 tsp) to the crockpot. I also used a can (8 oz) of tomato sauce. You should never follow a printed recipe's amounts of seasonings. Always taste test and season according to your preference. That way, the recipe is NEVER bland.
