Old-Time Beef Stew
About Beef Stew
I grew up with this stew. Both my grandmother and mother made this on weekends, and anytime the pastor was coming over for dinner. My grandmother even told me story's of her mother making this. This stew was my favorite meal as a child. The smell of it cooking would fell the house and know one could wait for it to be done. Just think about it still makes my mouth water. My mother would sever hers with homemade yeast rolls. While my grand mother would choose a sweet corn bread. The cornbread was always what I wanted, and recommend serving it some with your stew.
This is the same recipe that they made and that I now make for my family. You can add pearl onions, green beans, or corn to it if you want, but enjoy my just basic sometime I will even leave out the peas
