Beef Tomato Stew

When I was a kid, almost every Sunday especially during the winter we had this for lunch; a classic sunday recipe for the whole family to enjoy together. When my mom cooked, this tender and juicy beef it was usually served with bucatini spaghetti (thick spaghetti with a hole running through the center) or with orzo pasta baked in the oven (the famous Youvetsi, delicious).
