Beef loves a fresh herb and spices blend. If you are press for time, a trusted combination of dried herbs and spices will embrace the flavors of the beef. Add your vegetables and liquid of choice; you have an excellent stew.

The key to a successful beef stew are spices and your vegetable combination. Having a good condiment makes a huge difference. For example, my Original Hot Sauce is perfect when seasoning red meat.

Oftentimes, red meat needs strong herbs and spices. The hot sauce or condiment is a mixture of concentrated herbs and spices with hot peppers that create an authentic taste of the Caribbean.

Instead of adding fresh hot peppers or instead of looking for a seasoning salt spice, add my special bold flavor condiment. It will not only add tons of flavor to your dish, but it will also add the authentic taste of the Caribbean you may be craving.

Don’t forget to learn more about the vegetables you like. Consider their taste when experimenting with meat.  Usually, leafy veggies go well with meat stews.
