ZWT 6. Comfort food. This recipe is supposed to be a typical dutch meal. I got it from nlplanet.com and adapted it. You can use stew meat or any cut of beef, since it is stewed. It sometimes takes an hour and a half for the meat to be really tender. In that case, I add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup more beef broth at the beginning so that it doesn't dry out. I like to use chuck for this. If you use a better cut of beef, it will be ready in 45 minutes.
