This is a delicious beef stew that makes full use of the umami flavor of the ingredients and is superior to anything you can find in a restaurant. I cooked this beef stew using the homemade Demiglace Sauce that I also made in the Hot Cook. This is a dish that makes you feel like eating at a luxurious restaurant. I’m so glad I can enjoy this kind of taste at home so easily!

I also made the demiglace sauce, which is the key to the beef stew flavor, in the Hot Cook.

I thought it would take a lot of time and effort, but it was surprisingly easy to make!

The finishing taste is superb and makes me feel very luxurious!
