    Made to recipe one day prior to serving with one big change and a few minor. The big one was to dice & fry two bacon slices & reserve to add at the last 20min (c. 25 calories per slice) & sub 2tbs of bacon fat for the olive oil. Used frozen pearl onions and removed the thyme sprigs & bay leaves prior to thickening. Subbed a flour/water slurry for cornstarch (just a personal preference). Very good.

    Loved this recipe. I have tried a number of beef stew/goulash type recipes and this is by far the best. I added more veggies as suggested previously and used dried thyme instead of fresh. I will definitely make this again.

    Delicious! though it took some time, the prep was easy. And the smell in my house while it was simmering was worth waiting to see if the taste matched-oh, and it was! Even got the green light from my hubby who thinks there is no such thing as Cooking Light!!

    The ingredients suggest flavor. The flavor suggests no ingredients. I've cooked less time to have something more flavorful.
