My husband's favorite beef stew. Tastes even better the next day for leftovers. Recipe is from our local Whole Food's Market.

Very nice stew! I did wonder, however if the temperature given in step #1 was correctly given. I cooked on 225° (as specified) for three hours, as directed, but the meat was not tender and there were no sign of bubbles or heat. I increased the temperature to 350° and cooked for another 1 1/2 hours. The stew was finally served and it was very tasty. I served with bread and butter. Thanks, mermaidmagic!
