This recipe came from having a very empty cupboard and freezer, all we had was a package of stewing beef.

Lovely and simple dish. I used a beef roast cut into 1 inch cubes and green peppercorn gravy mix. My 10yo gave it an enthusiastic two thumbs up but the balsamic vinegar was a bit too strong for ds8 & I so I will likely cut that by half next time and find a low sodium or make my own gravy as it was a just a bit too salty for me. The meat was really nice and tender, served over brown basmati rice. Thanks for posting AccidentalHomemaker! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring 2011 :)
