3 Potato Beef Stew

Maggie ^O^


We love this beef stew. It is warm and comforting and it just says Autumn!

We enjoy the blend of potatoes for something different and topping it with the horseradish and sour cream makes it fun and flavorful.

I like doing this in my slow cooker but it can be done on the stovetop as well.
