Robynne's Vegetable Beef Stew

Robynne Glenn


This stew is so versatile and can be adapted to fit your personal tastes and the ingredients you have on hand. I simmer mine all day on the stove and as with so many soups and stews, it is even better the next day! Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way. Trust your experience and adjust to your personal taste~Robynne
