Homestyle Beef Stew

Old Fashioned  Beef Stew


There’s nothing like thinking back on your early childhood and remembering the sounds and smells of the kitchen. A good ole fashion beef stew is one of those recipes that sends our scenes swirling, not to mention, it’s whole foods at their finest.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret that may seem kind of odd.  I don’t drink, at all…nope, not any alcohol. I just never have, but I do use it to cook with because there’s something incredible that happens when a bit of wine is added to comfort foods. I just wish I liked it more straight from a glass.

A good, homestyle beef stew can have lots of improvisations with seasonings (I used only the basic simple ones), varying veggies and even the wine you choose, but this is a hearty, flavorful meal.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try and see if it brings back memories of your Mom’s or Grandma’s beef stew.
