Red Wine Beef Stew With Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

Tate Two


The first time I made this recipe, I knew it was most definitely a keeper. Serve these with homemade yeast rolls and people will sing your praises ;)

Next time I make it, I'll add pictures. :)

I serve the meat in the same dish (a shallow bowl) but I don't top off the potatoes with the stew but rather have them side by side. I just like it better this way.

I also keep the potatoes with small chunks in it. Again, I just like the potatoes better this way.
