Hearty Beef Stew

This is a easy dish to make & lends itself to various adjustments as well, ie: omit beef broth & use tomato sauce simply by omitting broth. Adding a 28 oz. can of tomatoes & 1/2 tsp. sugar. During last 2 hours of cooking add 1 TBLS. of grated cheese & 2 tsp. of your favorite dried herbs.& a pinch of nutmeg. I hope you will enjoy it.
