“Hearty and delicious. My family's favorite stew for over 30 years. If you prefer, you can substitute basil for the rosemary--I fix it both ways. Update: When I originally made this recipe, I would coat the beef pieces with a flour/salt/pepper mix by shaking them in a bag and then brown them in a couple tablespoons of oil. I eliminated this step to simplify and lower the calories and fat, but if you do it that way it makes for a thicker sauce. Good either way!”

  1. Shake stew meat up in a bag with flour to cover.
