Followed this recipe quite closely but forgot to add the green onions at the end. Didn't matter, the dish was easy to make and was excellent. I used beef stew meat and sliced it thin. Will definitely be making this again.

This was really easy to make and satisfying to eat. A good recipe to make with someone. I added a little more meat, about 1lb of bok choy and 1 lb of potatoes and 4 cups broth, it served 6 easily. The ingredients are usually standards in my kitchen, except for the meat which can be frozen, and easy to cut thin if slightly defrosted.

I wouldn't call this stew, it's more of a soup. My review may not be fair b/c this is the second time I've used the chinese 5 spice seasoning and I don't think I care for it's taste. I thought it may taste better in a different recipe. I added about a 1/4 tsp. more salt and 1/2 tablespn. sugar to bring out more flavor. I don't think I'll make again.

Prepared exactly as written, this recipe was fantastic. It was easy, quick and delicious, more than the sum of its parts. I rarely cook with beef, but this was so satisfying to my husband and three boys that I will make it over and over. Oh, and it's pretty too.

Good stew, not the normal stew recipe. I sliced my sweet potatoes too thin, will cut in chunks next time. I bot stew meat already sliced it was great..
