Go ahead and wipe the drool off your mouth…. this picture will do that to you, and yes it really is that good. This is not a fast recipe, but it is worth the wait.  The meal itself is rather easy most the time is just waiting for it to cook and to get the meat to the point that it falls apart and melts in your mouth.  This recipe is also great as leftovers or to freeze part of it for a super fast and easy dinner idea another night. We eat it on top of mashed potatoes but you can also eat it over rice or noodles.

Ingredients

2 pounds of beef, cubed
Olive oil
6 carrots, diced
2 celery sticks, choped
1 onion, sliced
1 shallot, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 small can of diced tomatoes (any size is ok, depending how thick you’d like the stew)
1 quart of beef broth
1/2 cup of red wine
2 Tbsp of Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
handful of parsley, chopped
1 cup of frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of flour
