Definitely different ingredients of bacon, black olives, small white onions, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, orange peel, red wine and green peas give this stew a distinct savory flavor.

Directions

  1. Place bacon strips in a stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook until browned and crisp. Set bacon aside, and brown the beef cubes in bacon fat. Gradually stir in the wine, scraping up any browned bits as you stir. Dissolve the bouillon cube in boiling water, and pour into the pan. Add garlic, thyme, minced onion, salt and orange peel. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for one hour, until meat is tender.
  2. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water, and pour into the soup. When soup has thickened, add the peas, onions, olives and mushrooms. Cook until heated through, and serve.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Not special but easy. I let it simmer about an hour and a half for more tender meat.

This was good. Unlike any stew I have ever eaten. My family loves soup, and stews so I will be making this again.

This was a delicious weeknight meal. I loved the onions, found them jarred in the canned veggie section. They hold their shape nicely in the stew. I omitted the bacon, and just browned the meat in olive oil. I found the "gravy" took a little more cornstarch than mentioned to thicken to my liking, the addition of the mushrroms produces extra liquid. Thank you for your submission, we enjoyed trying this!
