Hearty Beef Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Carrie September

I found this recipe in a free Stop and Shop Publication. It sounded good and it was...I've changed a few things over the years but not too much, just enough to make it easier to make. I hope you enjoy it on a cold winter day just as much as we do! It is wonderful in a crusty bread bowl or with buttered biscuits(my hubbies favorite of course)!

Delicious stew! I cut up some strip sirloin steaks as they had been in the frezer for a while. I also added "Bisto" to thicken the liquid at the end. The meat was very tender. I would have given 5 stars if my teen gave it a thumbs up. Unfortunately, as he says, "I don't do stew!"
