Slow Braised Italian Beef Stew

When cold winds blow and the skies are gray and damp, there's something wonderfully appealing about a hearty beefy stew that's been gently roasted to perfection with meltingly tender chunks of beef, a rich wine-based sauce and plenty of fresh vegetables. This Slow Braised Italian Beef Stew starts out with the traditional stew ingredients, but also features a handful of classic Mediterranean ingredients that will make your taste buds feel like they've taken a magic carpet ride to Italy! Are you ready? If you love beef stew, you might want to also check out our Make-Ahead Beef Bourguignon and our Provencal Beef Stew (aka Daube). Both of these stews are French-inspired and were originally peasant fare, meals that could be made with produce from the garden and inexpensive cuts of meat.

I'm guessing that this Italian beef stew had the same humble origins. That's so interesting to me because these days, entrees of beef stew can be found on the menus of the fanciest and most highly acclaimed restaurants. And personally, beef stew is one of my favorite things to serve for winter dinner parties and get-togethers with family and friends.
