Last night, it was all about comfort food. And for me, that’s all about real beef stew! Autumn has not shown it’s fiercely cold side yet, so I may be jumping the gun with putting this recipe into a regular rotation. Still, it was simple to prepare and it turned out quite well. The meat was a bit on the dry side, but I think it was my error in loading up the potatoes first, so some of the meat didn’t get to “stew” in its juices. But I still got a thumbs up from the gourmet Mr. M, and I could have eaten three pounds of the potatoes and carrots. Mmmm!
Only one more day to go… and yet another slow cooker recipe set for tonight! This whole challenge is much easier to tackle when you KNOW you can’t stop for anything else because the cooked food is waiting for you at home!
