Easy Beef Stew

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by Hazeleyes

This is a very simple and tasty beef stew. I always use the lower sodium soups. The house always smells so good when we get home from work! Perfect on a cold winter day. Feel free to spice the soup up. I usually sprinkle some spicy salt-free seasoning on the meat and vegetables.

This was ok for me. I tend to like stews a little more thicker so if that is what you are looking for this recipe is not for you. I followed it exactly as stated and it was just "ok" it didnt wow me.
