Italian-Style Beef Stew
If you think a great, robust stew takes hours of cooking time, this delicious and speedy potful will change your mind. One GoodFood Magazine reader coos that the recipe is “Blummin’ lovely!” and we wholeheartedly agree! Stir-fry sliced beef from the market streamlines the prep even more. Serve it with a bowl of creamy mash or polenta with a green salad on the side for a wonderful supper.
