I used Ina Garten's excellent recipe, but cooked it for 3 hours (instead of 1.5) as the comments suggested. But now I'm worried I've overcooked the beef stew meat? It's starting to flake apart. And it definitely takes a few chews to get down. Have I overcooked it? Or is this just how beef stew meat works?
(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
