I made this for recipe tag. It was very good and my husband liked it too. I do think though that it has too much tomato flavor to let other ingredients come through. It's easy to make and I made mine in a slow cooker. I did brown the meat first with the onions. I used stew meat because I had that thawed out and had to use it. I also added some garlic and abouct a tablespoon of beef base to give it flavor. We like more in stew recipes so added potatoes and carrots too.  I will make this again but probably with less tomato juice and more water and beef base. I liked the way it thickened too. Thank you for posting Kissikate!
