Does anyone have a really good, hearty beef stew recipe? We've never made it, for some reason both my wife and I are craving it, and we think we can do better than Dinty Moore.

Simmer until almost tender - I then add a bag of small frozen onions and some whole or 1/2 mushrooms and cook until done. Onions and mushrooms tend to cook away during the process.This recipe was actually given to me as "Beef Bourginon" for pressure cooker. I have done it in pressure cooker (which I don't use anymore), stovetop and oven.Of course, its been 100 plus around here, stew is the last thing I would be cooking !

I have a pressure cooker which is great for beans -- I have a fantastic California Pinto Bean Soup recipe which is out of this world and cooks in about two hours in a pressure cooker , I'll post it if anyone is interested. Easiest, heartiest meal to make. Healthy too, except for the pound of bacon, maybe.
OMG, nom nom nom.
And thanks for the info about soaking for the non-pressure cooker version.
I'm thinking that navy beans might work, too. nom nom nom
