One of my favorite “slow” dishes, this beef stew is more like a perfectly spiced soup than an actual thick stew. Nonetheless, it is still a hearty meal with remarkable flavor and perfect for eating with a fresh, warm baguette to sop up the liquid (steamed white rice is also good). A friend of mine describes it as eating an “exoticized beef stew.” The preparation is quite simple, and then you can just leave the stew at the back of your stove in a low simmer for a few hours. Surprisingly, this dish is quite popular for breakfast.
