Beef Stew With Red Wine and Horseradish-Chive Cream

Comforting, hearty beef stew takes a turn for the better with creamy horseradish-chive topping that's meant to be mixed in. [Photograph: Jennifer Olvera]

Note: Most store-bought beef broths taste very little like beef, so we prefer to use chicken broth in most recipes. If you have a good, high quality store-bought or homemade beef broth, your stew will benefit from it. If you prefer to cook the dish on the stovetop, bring the combined ingredients to a boil, reduce the heat to low and follow the same procedures and time frame. Just be sure to stir it from time to time to prevent burning on the bottom of the pan.
