Country Beef Stew

Crystal ~


This is one of our favorite beef stews. It makes a hearty meal. I found it in a Amish cookbook. It is a very quick meal to throw together, if you already have your stew meat cubed. (The prep time does not include cubing the stew meat). You can add tomatoes, if you like also. We prefer this stew without tomatoes, which is just a personal preference. It can be made in the oven or the crockpot. The most important thing to remember with this stew is not to stir it while it is cooking.
