My husband said this was the best beef stew he'd ever had, and he doesn't give such high praise easily! It was fantastic. I used a generous 1/2 tsp. basil and no oregano, and I added a can of beef broth for more liquid.

This a Fantastic flavored stew. You won't want to try another recipe after this one. I have a similiar recipe posted here at zaar but mine recipe calls for tomato juice instead of whole tomatoes. Give it a try!
