It was a breeze to make and even the very, VERY, picky eaters in my house loved it. I had to make 1 sub. I had no tomatoes so I used a small can of spag. sauce. I left out the bay leaves and the allspice since they also weren't in my pantry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it! Hearty and tasty. Will be making it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I threw out my leftovers. 'Nuff said. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was just ok. My husband didn't care for the Thyme and it did almost seem bland. You would think with all the spices I wouldn't be. We added a little more salt. Had it for dinner. Not inedible just not great. Probably won't make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the worst stew I have ever made. The spices were weird and it just had no flavor. Don't waste your time on this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty much a flop. Didn't look anything like the yummy looking picture. Pork turned out tender and easily shreddable. Broth was pasty and had an unpleasant appearance. Overall taste was also unappealing. Find something else to do with your cut of pork. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was pretty good with a few tweaks. I left out the allspice because it seemed like it didn't fit well with the other ingredients. Next time I will at least triple the veggies. I doubled them for this batch and it still wasn't enough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't often find a meal unedible. This was. The spice combination was bad and cooking the vegetables for 8 hours made them tasteless and mushy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This stew was amazing with a few changes. I used a combo of homemade chicken and turkey stock instead of water, since the other reviews complained of lack of flavor. I doubled the garlic and added some McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning, a favorite thank to Rachel Ray. I used leftover pork loin and sausage, and threw a couple pieces of bacon in while cooking. It turned out perfect and was a great use of leftovers. Will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. I reduced the thyme (as I am not a fan of thyme) and the recipe didn't disappoint. We will be making this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
