Asian beef stew

Recently I collaborated with the Best of Beef with this Asian beef stew to highlight the exceptional quality that is Irish Hereford Prime beef. I have been making this stew for many years now, and I can wholeheartedly say that using Irish Hereford Prime beef has produced the most succulent version of this meal. The…
