French Beef Stew

I have never, ever liked stew before trying this one. This has no onions and a nice "tart" taste, plus the meat and potatoes aren't cooked to mush. We loved it! Am printing the recipe as originally posted on (submitted by Corwynn Darkholme) but I made some substitutions based on what I had on hand. Instead of fresh potatoes, I used two 16 oz. cans of whole potatoes (halved). Also used a coarse stoneground mustard in place of the Dijon. If your mustard is salty, be sure NOT to salt the beef when you brown it. The flavor of the stew was wonderful BEFORE adding the mustard, so you could definitely leave that out and still have a delicious dish. I served with cornbread, but warm crusty French bread would be great as well.
