Italian Beef Stew



This Italian beef stew recipe is just unbelievable. It's a great weekend recipe that tastes better and better every time you make it.

I'm thinking it's the wine that gives it that added flavor. Not the wine I drank but the wine I added. It was the first time I made this Italian beef stew using red wine and it made a world of difference.

I bought a great loaf of Italian bread and finished the wine I used in the stew. It was the best.

I'm sure this recipe will get you the most.
