Good but watery, Member whitacre86

Overall, this was easy to do and worked well. The only drawback: It was far too watery when done. I'm not sure why 6 cups of water is necessary. Or maybe the first 5 hours should be cooked uncovered. But I'm not an expert in stews like this so if someone has an answer, I'm interested.
