This is another winner from my old and trusty Bon Appetit magazine. I love this stew. And it's really easy to modify for your own tastes (which I have) I like potatoes in my stew, so I modified it to add them. I usually throw this all in a crock pot after I brown the beef. It makes a really delicious easy dinner or left over lunch. *Cooking times are approximate*
