Traditional Beef Stew

Traditional Beef Stew
Traditional Beef Stew. I have known for 6 years that my husband likes stew.  Fall would start to set in and he would say, “I just want a big bowl of meaty, hearty, stew.” 

Until now, I have never made it for him.  Wife of the year (or past 6 years), I know.  But, we had stew meat and I figured I should show the guy some love.

I was actually very very surprised.  It was so so good.  So good, in fact, that I will be eating leftovers for lunch today.  That says a lot. 

First, I don’t usually eat lunch, and there are very few things that I like enough to have the next day for lunch.  (I do however, eat leftovers for dinner regularly….is that weird)

I got this recipe from my Taste of Home slow cooker book.  It is a real gem.  (naturally, I made a few changes)

Traditional Beef Stew

1 lb beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 lb carrots, cut
