I've always been a fan of my dad's beef stew, and my sister only managed to make it even tastier. I'll admit that it tends to be on the salty side, but that's also past of what I like about it. It makes a nice balance for all of those sweet foods that are out there, so it might go well with dessert--if you haven't already filled up on this awesome recipe.
This is a good recipe. I personally like to add sliced radishes. The broth tends to be a little salty though.
