The recipe didn't call for Thyme. Someone just suggested it. Use the seasonings that you like. I omit the salt as I need low salt. Worchestershire sauce, canned tomatoes and celery will have enough for me and the other spices take care of good flavors too.

Super simple recipe, I added a few extra ingredients, (Just what we do here in TEXAS!,, :) ).. I added some 1/2 tsp of thyme, and 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper, just give it a little kick..I took one small red potato and graded (this gives the stew a bit thicker broth) .green cabbage midway through the cooking process. I also shucked a ear of fresh corn, which really adds flavor.

I loved the recipe but like all things I do cook I changed it just a little. Instead of Beef, I was lucky enough to harvest a huge 7X7 Elk this year so I subsituded that for the beef. I did use beef stock for more flavor and cut back on the salt to 1/8 teaspoon, they could add more if they felt like it and I added a 15oz can of corn that I had drained the liquid out of.

I am making this recipe right now and I don't see where it calls for thyme. Everyone keeps saying to reduce the thyme.
