            Comments about Le Creuset Christmas Eve Beef Stew:

            This recipe is only the second I've tried since getting my Le Creuset in November. I only used 2# beef and it was already cut into 1" chunks. I think the "large potatoes" listed in the recipe must be medium red potatoes since 3 large baking potatoes would never fit. I used 2 baking potatoes and cut them into 1" chunks. I did not peel the potatoes. I had to add more water (2 cups) when I added the green beans (instead of peas) since it was nearly dry. I wondered if all ingredients needed to be submerged; if anyone can answer that I'd appreciate it. I used 3 large onions since we like onion flavor. I substituted red wine vinegar for the wine. Since everything was overdone (but still tasty) I think I'll try changing the 4 hour (total) cook time to 3 hours.

            I chose this recipe because of the many ingredients I already had on hand, like carrots, celery, onion and potatoes. I made a few additions/changes:
            1. I baked at 375 for 2 hours and then added semi-thawed peas plus some sliced mushrooms I had on hand.
            2. An hour later, I tasted it and added more seasonings: salt & pepper, garlic salt, Otis Cafe spice blend, a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and a dash of balsamic vinegar.
            3. To thicken the stew before serving, I stirred in a few tablespoons of Bob's Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour.
            I thought the flavor was much improved with these adjustments, as compared with the "before" flavor.

            This was lovely - but I never saw what to do with the shallots so I left them out...any suggestions? There is already a lot of onion in the mix!
