There are 3 things that need to occur before I officially accept that fall is here.
- The temps become cooler
- The leaves turn colors
- I make Mom’s Beef Stew
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to share with you this recipe. I grew up with my mom making this, a recipe that was passed down to her from my Grandma. Let me tell you, this woman made this dish to perfection! Without a doubt, this recipe is our family favorite. The best part, it is without a doubt, one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. It only requires a handful of ingredients, but the mixture and flavor is absolutely amazing.
I would highly recommend making this recipe on a cold chilly Sunday. Football on the TV while you snuggle on the couch and let this slow cook all day long! Perfect for a big crowd – full disclosure; this recipe feeds a small army. So be prepared to invite guests, or have lots of leftovers. (PS – beef stew leftovers are almost better than the first bowl….so I would plan for that, haha).
**All the ingredients listed below can absolutely be adjusted to taste. Feel free to play with the ratio of meat, potatoes, and carrots to your liking!
