"The truest SUCCESS is but the development of self."
Got some Angus beef stew chucks and fried then cleared the centre of the large frypan, and fried chopped onion and green pepper, when browned add a load of paprika powder and beef stock and simmer, a bit later add peas and carrots and let simmer for hours. I had a can of sliced mushrooms so added them in. When ready thicken with some flour that was added to water, have over wide flat German egg noodle. Kinda like a Hungarian beef stew.

@Furrymama Looks nice!
One suggestion: I would take out the meat after the sear and put it aside, because it might be overdone when cooking it with the onions and veg. So I'd rather sear the meat, take it out and roast the onions, carrots and potatoes like a mirepoix. Then back in with the meat and finish them off with the merlot together. Let it bubble for a while and scratch all those tasty bits from the bottom. In go the tomatoes and then a nice low simmer for a good while. Potatoes do not cook well in acidic enviroments like tomatosauce (or wine). So your advise to get them fork tender before is very valid.
One question: I'm European, so what and how much in gramms is a TB?
