In large pop add 6 cups water and heat until boiling.
Season stew meat that has been cut into bite size pieces with garlic salt. Brown in batches in large pan in some olive oil. As each batch is browned, remove and place into pot of water. After all meat is browned & removed to water, add diced onion & stir-fry just until it starts to color. Add to water. Deglaze pan with 1/2 cup wine & 1/2-1 cup water scraping bits off bottom of pan & poor through metal strainer into water. Add tomatoes (after crushing them with your hand), beans, celery, carrots, & Spinach (use only the cleaned leaves that have been cut), & spices. Either bring to boil & then turn down to simmer for 30 mins, or simmer on low for several hours (like a crock pot!). Skim top of soup of "scum" that is from the meat and toss. Server with warm Bread & Butter! Yummmy!
