Really Easy Beef Stew

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by HappyMommy1422

This is an extraordinarily easy recipe and so very good on a cold day. I found it in a Better Homes and Gardens Busy Woman's Cookbook that my mother has had for years. Adjust the seasonings to your preference. I've added oregano and garlic and it's turned out well.

This is pretty much how my mother used to make beef stew. Simple, easy, tasty and smell great while it cooking. I did add a couple of dashes of Worcestershire and lots of pepper. Thanks for sharing a dish that was greatly appreciated on a cold dreary day. Made for Cookbook Tag.
