Yummy beef stew
If you're looking for an easy to cook, great tasting beef stew, look no further! After reading Karen's glowing recommendation, I decided to follow this recipe for a basic beef stew with carrots and mushrooms, and what a success it was! Even though I had to improvise a little as all the measurements were in American cups and ounces, and some of the ingredients I'd never heard of (cremini mushrooms? cans of beef broth?), the stew tasted yummy, especially considering how easy and quick it was to make. It went really well with herby dumplings (out of a packet, I'm afraid) and was much appreciated by all.
Thanks, Karen, for the recommendation. I suspect this will become a winter staple, especially as there's always plenty of red wine in the house ;-)
