Delicious Beef Stew

As the cold continues to increase this winter, nothing hits the spot better then something warm and rich like a stew. I remember growing up and getting home from school on a cold winter day and was always excited when my family had a stew cooking on the stove top. The wonderful smell had my mouth watering waiting for it to be complete and in my stomach. A good beef stew is not only filling but rich in vegetables and sauce that you need to make sure to have some bread to dip into it, don't let any of it go to waste.

Stewing beef is required for this type of stew and it is relatively inexpensive compared to other cuts of meat, you can choose to use any vegetables you like, add the ones that you enjoy to the beef stew and take out the ones that you don't like. A beef stew seasoning mix will cut some work out and speed up the meal somewhat from its long cooking time. Make sure you are using a large pot, a 5qt pot works best to make the stew as their are quite a bit of servings and the great part is that the stew tastes better and better as you reheat and eat.
