I found this recipe in a free Stop and Shop Publication. It sounded good and it was...I've changed a few things over the years but not too much, just enough to make it easier to make. I hope you enjoy it on a cold winter day just as much as we do! It is wonderful in a crusty bread bowl or with buttered biscuits(my hubbies favorite of course)!

Delicious stew! I cut up some strip sirloin steaks as they had been in the frezer for a while. I also added "Bisto" to thicken the liquid at the end. The meat was very tender. I would have given 5 stars if my teen gave it a thumbs up. Unfortunately, as he says, "I don't do stew!"

This is now the only stew recipe I will use. The taste was excellent. I halved the recipe since I only had 1 pound of meat and there were no leftovers. I left out the mushrooms because the kids don't like them and substituted extra broth for the wine since I was out but other than that followed it exactly. It was so rich and hearty. Thank you for a great stew recipe Carrie!
