Spicy Beef Stew

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Miss Diggy

So good for those fall and winter months. Gets you really warm inside! Serve with some nice crusty french bread to sop up all the liquid.

This was very good and VERY spicy! I halved the black pepper and it was still extremely hot, hot, hot. I did simmer the meat for about 1 1/2 hours before adding the veggies and simmering for another 45 minutes or so. I wanted the beef to be very tender and it came out great. I used twice the amount of beef and added potatoes, but otherwise followed the recipe (except for the above mentioned pepper thing :) to a "T". I would suggest anyone with kiddos may want to reduce the pepper even further, but for those of you who like it hot, this does warm you up! Thanks for the tasty recipe, Diggy.
