Christmas Beef Stew in Balsamic Reduction with Spicy Potatoes

Christmas is around the corner and this recipe is perfect for the Christmassy atmosphere!

The beef meat is very versatile and it is possible to cook it in several ways. I really love stew meat, mainly during Holy Celebrations, like this! I was inspired by the characteristic flavour of balsamic vinegar, that I really love.

Warm up your heart and prepare this fantastic recipe for Christmas, you can accompany your meal with white rice, polenta or any other side dishes to intensify the stunning flavour of this meat with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena  IGP  reduction.

I used my Spicy Boiled Potatoes as a side, so keep reading and try my :
