Stewing for a Simple Meal

Stewing for a Simple Meal

A nice hearty stew is wonderful on a chilly day. And there’s really nothing more simple than soup or stew. I enjoy cooking and baking from scratch, but part of simplifying your life is to not over-do things.

I save my scratch baking for special recipes or special occasions. Otherwise, I mix ready made with scratch, i.e., my Simple Beef Stew. I use fresh meat and fresh potatoes, but I add canned veggies. It’s quick and easy, sort of a “set it and forget it”, after the meat is marinated. I like to make this on a Sunday morning, if I make a big enough batch, we eat it for lunch and dinner. This recipe is easy to double up. I hope you enjoy it!
