Oh my word, a genuine classic, hearty beef stew! We havent had a beef stew in ages so, as it is winter right now here in South Africa, this Hungry Mans Homestyle Beef Stew is going to be a perfect, warming meal for us. As much as I love using various herbs, spices and the like it is lovely to return to retro dishes like this one. Thank you for the recipe!
