Easy Beef Stew

5 stars from 1 rating of Easy Beef Stew

Beef Stew is so Tasty!

Beef Stew is a favorite around my house. My family enjoys the hearty taste of the beef and the potatoes. I enjoy cooking it especially during the winter months, however, we enjoy it year around. Let me know how you like it. Simplicity and taste are the key. I always use reduced sodium salt and reduced sodium worcestershire sauce.
