The Best Beef Stew

When you get tired of all the Christmas sweets and foods, you can make this down home, comfort food beef stew.

This beef stew is the best one I ever ate.  Once I made this I have not gone back to any of my old stew recipes.   It has fast become a favorite.  And I think it will for you too.

Make this stew on a day when you are home in the afternoon and on a chilly day.  It takes about three hours in the oven.  It’s a perfect way to warm up the house and your insides.
