Beef needs longer and gentler cooking than other stewing meats to become tender, but it can produce a most satisfying, rich flavour. I like to use plenty of garlic which becomes sweet and mild during the extended cooking. Onions are also necessary, I feel, for their sweet softness. You can experiment with different vegetables such as celery and root vegetables, adding them when you add the onions. This quantity serves 4-5.
