perfect Beef Stew

Jane Whittaker


I have a lot of ways to fix beef stew, but this is the easiest and the best.
When I was working, I put everything in a bowl,( didn't have disposable liners then) put in fridge, then on my way out the door in the AM, threw everything in the crock pot, and TA DAH supper was done when I cam home from work.
This one is for you working gals out there.
