Beef Stew – 炖牛肉

This is another one-pot wonder that you absolutely can’t go wrong with! Beef chuck is the one of the most underrated cut of meat. It can taste tough when not cooked long enough but it’s very flavourful yet easy on the wallet.

Cooked till fork tender but not falling apart. The addition of vegetables and herbs also adds a tinge of natural sweetness and depth of flavours to the stew! You can even add in a cup of red wine or throw in your favourite herb to elevate the flavours.
