Rachel's Almost Alphabet Beef Stewp

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This is my daughter's own recipe. She was 11 when she came up with this. It's a little thicker than soup, so I call it "Stewp". Feel free to substitute or leave out some ingredients.

We really enjoyed this "Stewp". I think Rachel is a great little Chef to be! We did skip the noodles and flax seeds, and used rice and lentils. I also left out the egg,just because I do not eat them.All in all, I think Rachel deserves encouragement as an inspiring chef! Thanks Sweetie, and keep on cooking!
