Chef’s Tips:
Add plenty of aromatics, such as Thyme and Rosemary, to boost the flavours of this classical French stew.

Deglazing means to remove and dissolve browned food residue from a pan to flavor sauces, soups, and gravies. By adding a liquid to a hot pan, all of the food residue will lift up, giving your dish added flavour.

Red wine can be added instead of water or stock for extra flavour. The alcohol will cook, therefore the flavour is the only thing that remains.

When adding the thyme, wait ten minutes or so, and you can pick out the stems and the leaves will remain in the stew.
