This is a simple recipe for a tasty beef stew using Italian herbs and seasoning. Like many stews, this dish is really versatile and you could easily make it with lamb or pork instead (remember that this would change the nutrition values) and you can throw in lots of different vegetables if you choose too.

We've made this a quick stew that cooks in around 90 minutes but if you want a richer flavour and more tender meat then you could cook this in the oven in a casserole dish for 2-3 hours. Either way, it's really yummy regardless of how you cook it! If you like this stew, don't forget to try our Carbonnade Flammande Recipe (Belgian Beef Casserole)
