By the way that recipe sounds delicious, I will have to try it!
I thought so too. My husband has been deprived of red meat, I think he's just excited he gets to eat it again. One cow in six months definitely could cause problems.

It turned out great. Very thick, rich and full of flavor. The cut of beef was perfect. I admit I got some ideas from this thread.

The only thing I would do differently, is to save at least one potato to dice up and put in one hour before serving so some potatoes are a little more firm. About 30% of the potato melted into the stew.

I have never in my decades of cooking family meals had a complaint, more like lots of compliments on my beef stew. I usually make a good size batch because the leftovers the next day or two taste even better! As everyone else has said, you can use whatever you want if it appeals to you. Why would it be a waste if everyone likes it and it all gets eaten up???

A agree that using flank steak for stew would be a terrible waste of money.

In the US, most of what is MARKETED as LONDON BROIL is either top round or bottom round. It would NOT be my first choice for a beef stew as it lacks a lot of intermuscular fat.

Personally, I would prefer to use chuck.
