Bankruptcy Beef Stew

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Dawn399

My husband and I both put each other through college. We found the name "Bankruptcy Stew" very fitting! We also found that chatting while chopping up the vegetables was a good time to catch up with each other. This makes a thick and hearty stew-who says there isn't a silver lining in every cloud!

I prepared this recipe according to the directions except for the celery, but only because I didn't have any. Upon serving, I did add grated cheddar cheese. This is a thick, hearty stew with a lot of flavor! This one definitely goes in the make-it-again category. My "Picky Panel of Judges" gave this recipe an overall rating of 5 stars.
