Reviewed Red Wine Beef Stew with Potatoes and Green Beans

Oct 12, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this twice now. The first time it was fantastic. The second time it was superb. My girl and I both felt the first time it was too perfumey with the rosemary, and so this time I left it out and it was perfect. I had to cook it a little longer during both cooking segments to get the meat and beans perfectly tender, but I suspect that's...

Absolutely delicious. Instead of using 1 stick of butter in the first step, I used 1/2, and as a result, I cut back a little on the flower. Instead of 3 cups of corn, I used 2. In it's place, I added 1 large potato cubed. On the final step I used 1/4 stick of butter. Afterwards, I wouldn't have changed another thing except for maybe still cutting...
