Made this last night and it was EXCELLENT! My only problem? Why aren't there any potatoes in this recipe?! Beef stew without potatoes is down right un-American! I added them, and they were perfection! My only other suggestion, for others with young kids is that it is pretty spicy with those red pepper flakes! I would halve them (although I love spicy food myself, when cooking for a mixed group, this may be a little over the edge for them. The turmeric added a beautiful color and an unusual flavor! We loved this one and will be adding it into our list of family favorites!
