Choose a hearty red Zinfandel or your favorite red wine for cooking this stew. If you prefer, you can use beef broth instead of the wine. To save time, you may want to use beef stew meat instead of cutting the beef roast into pieces.
This flavorful, hearty stew tastes wonderful with egg noodles, but you might want to try something different. For a change serve with hot cooked barley, wild rice, brown rice or couscous.
