Did you know fall is just around the corner? Oh wait, you did know that, because everything in the world is screaming pumpkin, even though it’s still in the 80’s. Well, obviously, I love a good fall recipe just like the rest of the world, but sometimes, we just aren’t ready to go all in. So I’ve taken a completely great stew recipe and added some fresh cherry tomatoes.

It’s a great way to get a taste of fall, while still holding onto summer. And, the sweetness of the red wine and the tomatoes create a delicious savory stew, that will be great all winter long (even if you can’t still get those delicious tomatoes).

You don’t have to, but you should definitely serve this with creamy, garlic mashed potatoes. They’re a perfect match for the thick stew sauce, and, since you’ll want to eat every last drop of it, you might as well have something to put it on.
