Beef and Vegetable Stew (Version 2)

Here’s a new version of the beef and vegetable stew with less tomato and a thicker sauce. I’ve also added a few more flavourings with parsley, thyme, Worcestershire sauce and red wine vinegar.  It’s a filling meal on its own or you can add a starch like mashed sweet potato, whole wheat pasta or polenta.
