Making beef stew from scratch

To make this stew, you will need the beef and any vegetables that your family likes. My grandmothers beef stew recipe takes a slight turn from what you might find on the internet because she never used wines or vinegar in her broth.

This fiery beef stew is tomato-based, so it is somewhat like a soup but it is thick like a stew, so my Grandmother called it a stew, and that’s what I call it, too!

The other reason she labeled it as a stew was that she browned the meat, which helped to thicken the broth which made it more of a stew. Then she would let the meat simmer on low for about an hour, it made the beef meltingly tender.
