However this recipe offers a shortcut to have a flavorful and awesome beef stew in no time. A key ingredient in this version is honey. Honey is a meat tenderizer. It contains protease that breaks down protein muscles in meat and makes it tender in to time. You can also add some star anise pods to elevate the flavor profile.
