Fred's Beef Stew

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by Roggins

Most beef stew recipes are either tomato-based or beef-based. We prefer both flavors, so this recipe is a hybrid of several stew recipes that I've tried in the past.

Yum! I used leftover roast and this went together really fast. I used white pepper and we devoured this. Thanks Roggins for sharing a nice keeper. Made for Bargain Basement tag.
