  • Pour wine into the same pot used to cook beef and bring wine to a boil. Boil until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes. Stir beef bouillon into wine and cook until dissolved, about 5 minutes. Return beef to the pot and add milk, potatoes, carrots, and celery. Season with oregano, basil, coriander, pepper, cumin, and salt and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium and continue to simmer until beef is tender, about 1 hour.

I won't make this again. I followed the recipe exactly and it was so overly-spicy we couldn't eat it. We tried diluting it with additional water and milk and it was still too spicy. I think the tablespoons of spices should have been teaspoons instead. Plus it was an odd purplish-gray color from the wine. ?? Read More

There were way too many dried spices in this recipe! I might try it again but only use 1/3 to 1/2 of the spices. Read More

Made this last night and was disappointed for it have too much spices in it. The spices need to be cut back probably at least by half in my opinion. My guests all thought it had too much in the spice department. I may try it gain but without so much in spices. The flavors are there to work with it would be great with some adjustments made too it.

I added about a teaspoon of both granulated garlic and onion powder, I skipped out on the cornstarch because I simply forgot to buy some I also added an extra two cups of water and two bullion cubes for more broth as I cooked longer on a lower heat. Read More

I did not use the coriander because I was out and despite that it turned out really good. Served over rice it makes for a very good meal. Read More

Too spicy for my kids to eat. And this is on me but they skipped the step to drain the meat. This has potential if you cut the spices in half. Read More

I thought it was okay but made some changes. I did not use milk. I used less than 1 Tablespoon coriander and cumin; I didn't care for the coriander flavor in the stew. It's just not necessary. I also added a bit of Worcestershire for zip. Read More
