In the fall Beef Stew is a staple at my house, and this is my recipe that has been a big hit with my family and friends. I know most beef stews are supposed to be thick but I like mine with a lighter broth, if you want it thick you can add a tablespoon to a small bowl and mix it with 2 to 3 tbsps. of the broth.
This is one of those great meals that can cook all day while you’re out doing fun fall things. It is also great for leftovers for the next day. It can also be prepped the day before if you have the time by going ahead and dicing up the potatoes, carrots, and onion and leaving them in a bowl of water in the fridge overnight.
I like to eat mine without adding anything extra besides a little salt. My boyfriend eats his with hot sauce. Its a really versatile stew that is both filling and delicious and you don’t have to feel guilty for eating it.
