Stews are convenient and a perennial family favourite in many households. Shaun Hill's beef stew recipe requires braising the meat for 2 to 3 hours before stewing with carrots and mushrooms in a rich red wine and tomato sauce. He serves the hot beef stew over a creamy mashed potato with leeks.
I make this about once a week. It's super-easy to put together, and you can do it in the crock pot or even on the stove top on low heat for three hours. Delicious and smells amazing. || jools’s favourite beef stew | Jamie Oliver | Food
