Perfection. Perhaps the best beef stew I have ever had. lol pneuma and i must shop at the same place, i used fleur de sel too. I used the recipe Loof referenced to make my own herbes de provence, some fresh some dried, lavender and fennel and thyme and rosemary and so much more. Added a little bit more wine at the end because i wanted to have my perfect Dumplings added to it. I have tried many a straight from france recipe for this stew but have to say, this is better
Perfect! This was so delicious, I would have gladly eaten more but DH finished it! I used fleur de sel for the salt and this is a savory dish which was saucier and it's only when I saw loof's that hers was more soupy. Mine must have evaporated more but nevertheless I thought this was one of the best I've tried. Merci! Made for ZWT5- French, Zaar Chow Hounds.
Oh, but this dish was outstanding! I used Herbes de Provence to make my own herbes de provence and accidentally put in twice as much as called for, but I just added some extra wine and broth and it was delicious. A real keeper!
