Sweet Potato Beef Stew

This past summer I've discovered how much I like sweet potatoes. Never having thought of putting them into a beef stew I thought today would be the perfect time to try this. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted.

Having had a frigid and harsh winter this year I've been making many soups and stews to keep us warm. The thing I like about making a stew is that you can make it early in the day, turn it on a low simmer and before you know it it is filling the house with wonderful aromas.

I've been making homemade soups and stews for decades, and find them to be a comfort food. Many people only make and eat soup during the cold months of the year, but I enjoy making soup all year round. If you have soup or stew recipes please be sure to stop by my "Soups On" lens and let me know so that I can add a link to your favorite recipe lenses.

No kitchen should be with a large pot. This pot can be used for soups, stews, vegetables,sauses and more.

      @Lady Lorelei: I've noticed that too at restaurants and happy to see them on the menu. I'm totally addicted to sweet potato fries with a spicy dipping sauce.

      You know, I never thought to add sweet potatoes to my stews. I really should, as I love yams. Thanks for another great recipe.

      I love sweet potatoes but have never tried them in soup or stew. I really like that more restaurants are now serving them.
