Beefy Stew and a Warm, Wet Fall


  Hey people! So this post features a recipe I used to make a delicious French Beef Stew. My client gave me the recipe when I told her that I had some stew meat and wanted to do something with it. We scoured her favorite cookbook until we found the recipe she'd been thinking of. I got home and adjusted a few ingredients, but was super excited to find out how it turned out. The next morning I got up an hour earlier and started chopping and dumping ingredients into my crockpot (shout out to my hubby here for his great foresight in getting it for me for Christmas last year; I use it a lot!). I had my hubby turn it down two hours later, as I was at work, and then I added some veggies after I got home from work. The stew spent a total of 10 hours in my crockpot and when we at it for dinner that night the meat with nice and tender and just fell apart on your fork, so yummy! With no further ado I have my recipe and the original recipe below. Happy Cooking!
