Old-Fashioned Beef Stew


It's been cold and rainy here and the last thing 
Buzz said before we went to bed last night was - 
"Let's make stew tomorrow."

This is the basic recipe we've modified from both of our moms.

- something you need to know - 
it changes a little bit each time we make it.
It all depends on what we have on hand.

The flavor punch from this stew comes from that little bay leaf ... it's always a must!

Sometimes we use BIG CHUNKY pieces, 
but today's version - small bite-size pieces.

Plenty for us and Plenty to share.

  1. I was thinking about you today and how inspiring your blog is. Imagine my happy surprise when I saw a new post. Your stew recipe is quite close to our Mulligan Stew. There isn't anything as comforting as the smell and taste of stew on a cold blustery day. Comfort food in these trying times.

    1. Theresa, thank you so much for your sweet comment - It has been so great to connect again. There is nothing like a good stew - I love the name "Mulligan Stew" Love it! Have a blessed day, friend!

  2. Oh it looks so good! I wish I had found this yesterday. I used a pkg mix. It was not so good!
    I will use your recipe next time!

    1. Oh, I bet you make an amazing stew! Truly, such an easy meal and so comforting on a cold day. Blessings, friend!
