The flavors in a slow-cooked beef stew improve as it sits for a day or two, so it is a perfect make-ahead for a dinner party. Buy nicely marbled meat, such as chuck, for this recipe.

Worth every minute!

I made half a batch and followed the recipe 99% (used a green onion instead of leek leaf). The stew broth is not thick but it is SOOOO tasty. I used a high quality Pinot Noir and it tasted like the best beef broth ever, not wine-y at all. I made it the night before and then reheated and the texture/flavour didn't suffer at all.

tasty, flavourful, make-ahead, rich-tasting, simple technique

FYI: This recipe is NOT LOW

FYI: This recipe is NOT LOW SODIUM! For starters bacon is a no, and the mg per serving are 4 times the qualifier of being low sodium. Eating Well editors need to take this off the low sodium list.
