“This is how my Grandmother taught me to make Beef Stew.I'm always asked to share the recipe, even my childrens friends would ask me to send a copy to their Mother. Although there is a bit of prep time involved you will find this beef stew the perfect winter meal for the meat lovers in your family. I serve this with either a salad or cole slaw and alternate using a crusty bread one time and cornbread another. The potatoes are boiled seperately as Granny said they get too done when cooked with the stew and fall apart. She sometimes halved the potatoes and served them on the side with the stew. Peach Cobbler makes the perfect dessert to follow this hearty meal. Peach Cobbler by Suellen Anderson is almost an exact duplicate of my Grandmothers so try it.”
