Beef Meat Stew

hello my lovely peeps!

I thought winter was gone, like most of us did. But winter hit us yet again. The grass outside my window is once again white and the spring jacket has once again been shoved into the back of my closet and my winter jacket is currently hanging on a prime spot.

What’s better than a warm and hearty Meat stew as the winter has decided to make reappearance into our lives. My lovely grandma inspires this recipe, she used to make the best meat stew when I was growing up, and what’s better during this cold and prolonged winter than a traditional family stew to keep us warm.
