What could be more comforting on a cold winter day in the great white north than stew? Beef Stew. I have a long list of comfort foods, and Beef Stew is for sure in the top ten. Hearty, rich, full of flavor. We like ours a little spicy. Beef Stew always brings smiles to our dinner table. This recipe makes enough for an army. Make this stew, and invite someone over after church on Sunday. Make some dinner rolls and an Apple Pie and they will think they died and went to heaven!
Now for the good stuff. One glass Merlot or Burgundy wine. FIRST you must take a sip of the wine. Heaven for bid you pour nasty wine in your beef stew! Take another sip….are you sure it’s good enough?
We eat our stew over noodles. If you prefer potatoes, you could make yourself some mashed taters and ladle stew over them. OR you could cut up chunks of potatoes and add them into the stew, add extra water if you are going to add potatoes. I love peas in my stew, but my kiddos think peas will kill them, so I leave them out. The sacrifices I make…let me tell ya!
