French Beef Stew
First time I've made beef stew and my family was mad that I was making it - they don't like beef stew. Turned out that they LOVED it. I did make a few changes though. I added salt and pepper to the flour, used a little more olive oil and added some butter when browning the 2 lbs of meat. Deglazed with 1/2 cup of red wine. Added celery, pearl onions and minced garlic. My family hates mustard, so I only used 1 tbs on mustard and i added it with the beef broth so cooking would mellow out the flavor. Added 1 tsb of worchester sauce, about 3 tbs of beef base and 1/2 tsp of ground celery seed. No additional salt was needed, but it did need pepper. Simmered for about 1 1/2 hours covered and 1/2 hour uncovered to thicken. Truly the BEST beef stew I've ever had.
