"This is a hearty stew recipe I have been making for a while. I love this with a nice fresh bun to soak up the sauce with. I prefer using fresh herbs in this recipe, but you can use dried if you like; 1/2 teaspoon of each works fine, just make sure you pinch them in between your fingers while adding them to release the flavours. I do not add salt to this until the very end. It all depends on the brand of broth, as every type of broth has a different salt content."
