Growing up I never liked Beef Stew. As an adult, a friend asked me to make a batch of stew for him. I don't like cooked carrots so I omitted them from the dish. He loved it and so did I. I wondered why and then I realized there were no carrots in the dish. Aha......the mystery of why I didn't like stew was solved. I really love this recipe and yes, you may add carrots if you want.
