Best-Ever Beef Stew

Share or Save for Later

I’ve made this quite a few times now and everyone has loved it! Including myself! It’s now become a regular at our table all year long.

It’s perfect for the winter months when you’re craving a hearty, warming, filling stew.

The best beef stew I’ve ever tasted. I suggest to definitely use the wine! It really kicks up the flavor in the most amazing way.
