Five Hour Stew

When I want a good,
and easy to make
beef stew, I go to this recipe.
The only prep is cutting up the carrots and potatoes and mixing everything together.
After cooking for five hours you will have a perfect beef stew for a chilly night.

When I have the extra time, I will make my all time favorite beef stew recipe. This stew has many steps and takes longer to make but it is very worth it! You can find that recipe here:
