Beef Stew

Beef Stew and with Noodles – comfort food

Beef stew is the ultimate comfort food. I love those tender flavoursome beef chunks in the super rich gravy. Serve it hot with mash potato, crusty bread or steamed rice (yes rice!)….or just on its own.  If there are leftovers, heat it up the next day and add some noodles. The noodles will soak up all that rich gravy and the taste is heavenly – a little like the Chinese beef brisket noodles (牛腩麵).
