Beef Stew with Prunes and Capers

Beef Stew with Prunes and CapersThis hearty stew offers an excellent balance of contrasting flavors. Simmering long and slow ensures rich, well-developed flavor and fork-tender beef. Careful browning of the beef prior to "stewing" contributes an intense richness to the flavor of this dish, as well.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 pounds boneless beef stew meat or chuck roast, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 MAGGI Garlic & Onion Flavor Seasoning Cubes, crushed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups pitted prunes, cut in half
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup white wine
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons capers
1 to 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 bay leaves
Fresh parsley for garnish
Hot, cooked rice for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:

  1. Sprinkle beef with crushed seasoning cubes.
  2. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat; cook beef until browned on all sides.
