There is a notation in the upper right hand corner

1 ____beef broth

1 bouillon cube


She doesn’t mention this mixture in the method. What do you think? Mix it up and toss in there or an alternative to the 2 cups of water. Which, in my opinion is not a lot of liquid to make a stew.

I have this in the oven now and it smells amazing! The first blank is "boneless." Next, I believe the notation at top right of the back is 1 can beef broth separated by a line for beef bullion cube / water. I take that line to mean either/ or depending on what you have.

I doubled this recipe, using 4c boxed beef broth and about 3c water. I'll let you know how it turns out. I live at 8500' elevation, so adding extra liquid and cooking longer will be necessary. I also turned it up to 400° in hopes it will finish by the time we're ready to eat, but will reduce that again as I go. I just did it to expedite the 1h 45 min cooking at altitude and since doubled.

It was good! Meat was excellent and very tender. I thought a little salty but that might have been from the tomato sauce. Kids liked it too. I had it in long due to our schedule tonight so it ended up very thick but we enjoyed that - not soupy or watery.
