    Michelle, Thanks for the recipe. I was making a beef stew for my family and all I've ever known is the McCormick packets- for $1.19 each! I was thinking.... boy I'd really rather NOT go the groc store to pick that one item up. Now I have a recipe that includes what I keep on hand.
    Thanks again!

    I love this recipe, but the price of stewing beef is so outrageous, that I need to wait for a really good sale. I haven't made this one in a while, and I'd like to.

    It's so chilly here today that I think this one will be a good meal for dinner.
