Creamy beef stew with mushrooms is very tender, juicy, rich and tasty. Cooking such a stew is not too difficult, in this recipe we are stewing meat in the oven, but this can also be done with gas simply over low heat. Serve with any garnish or as an independent dish, add your favorite spices and herbs if desired.
