Beef stew with white wine

This dish, (with all its possible variations) is one of my favorites when you have to feed a large table, whether it's friends coming over for dinner, or because you've decided to start cooking over a wood fire!

A stew is obviously very simple to make: in just a few steps, all the ingredients are in the pot and bubbling away happily. The devil is in the quality of the food: tasty meat from lovingly raised animals, seasonal vegetables... all this will result in a highly flavored stew, or a simple casserole... so don't hesitate to choose your food with care.

When my guests prepare it during our nature cooking experiences, they bring their own touch to it. They get to change the amount of spices, or add one that I wouldn't have thought of. The result is always delicious. This is also what I suggest you do: start from this basic recipe, and modify it as you wish. If you are lazy, use this one. It is also very good.

Do you like to explore recipes for every day, for the whole family, from here and elsewhere, to be prepared at home or on a wood fire?
