Beef Stew. Ok, yum! The beef is so tender and just melts in your mouth! Every bit of this beef soup is infused with wonderful flavor from slow roasting in the oven. This hearty beef stew is quite a treat and is every bit as good as it’s cousin, the famous beef bourguignon! Pair it with fresh bread or serve it over pasta. It is so satisfying!
A Note on Cooking Wine: Please don’t use anything labeled “cooking wine.” You want to use a wine that would be considered drinkable. Our family made the decision not to drink alcohol, but I sure do love cooking with it, so our kitchen is well stocked ;). My favorite wine that I use for nearly all red wine cooking is an Idaho brand: Ste Chapelle’s “Soft Red.” It’s mildly sweet and very pleasant. I’m not a wine connoisseur by any means and if you are, you’re probably laughing at my description of it ;).
