Busy Day Beef Stew

Soups and stew just might be my favourite food. They’re warm, in a bowl, they can be flavoured to suit any cuisine, they can suit any dietary need, last but not least, they are deeply nourishing. Gelatin-rich broth soothes the gut lining, the soft cooked vegetables are easily digestible, the tough cuts of meat are cooked until they nearly melt in your mouth. What’s not to love about them?
