Beef Stew Pot

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by bayoucritter aka. a

My wayward adaption of POT AU FEU.Very versatile, filling and nutritious. Don't be afraid of the allspice! It goes great with the beef. I make this often. Tastes better than canned beefstew and you can be creative with it. Serve with a hearty loaf of bread n real butter:)

We loved this dinner! I made it with some variations; 1.5 lbs stew meat, 2 red potatoes, no turnips, garden green beans, 1 red onion, garden celery (so good!), no celery salt and 2 bay leafs. I added frozen peas at the beginning and they were fine.
