Beef Stew in a Bread

One of the many dishes that I experimented with in first year during the cold winter months when u needed something warm to comfort the heart lol. Strangely enough, I am eating it during summer. Its been a while since I last made a beef dish so I kinda missed it. Quite tired of rice and potato so I guess there was only bread left as one of the few starchy options. The good thing about this dish is that I can keep it for days or freeze it and keep it for weeks.
The taste was pretty robust after letting the ingredients soak in the gravy overnight. The idea of stew in a bread is just a gimmick haha. I'll be happy just eating it in a bowl.

500g beef
4 small carrots
2 large potatos
3 stalks of celeray
1 large onion
10 cloves of garlic
dried herbs
2 beef stock cubes

Fry the garlic cloves and onion in some oil till fragrant. Brown the beef cubes . Add in sufficient water to cover the beef. throw in 2 beef stock cubes. Add in the vegetables, pour more water so that it coveres all the ingredients. Boil and let it simmer for 1 hour before serving. Add in some dried herbs for added taste

P.S: the longer you simmer the soften the meat. Use red wine( Cheap ones of course) as a substitute to water to enhance the flavour.
