This was one of my Twitter posts this week.
Can I just tell you how great that beef stew tasted! For those of you who are not enduring a very cold spring, then you may not be able to fully understand the depth of this bone freezing cold that has penetrated this area! It may look nice out, flowers blooming, grass greening up, but I can assure you it does not feel anywhere near spring when you are standing at a ballgame for over 2 hours! Saw this on our local weather forecast.
Geez 1983!!!!!! I was just out of high school….so yes it’s been a long time since it has been this cold! (And really don’t feel the need to let me know you weren’t even born in 1983 or you were in kindergarten then!)
And since we may have a few more days of this cold I thought I would share my fave beef stew recipe. See at Jesus and Dark Chocolate you can get more than just biblical insight, stories of dealing with Early Onset Alzheimer’s, family moments to share……you also get cool recipes!! 🙂
Baseball Beef Stew for the Crock Pot
Throw ( that is baseball lingo for carefully place) the following items in your crock pot:
- 4-5 med potatoes cut into quarters
- As many petite carrots you think your kids will eat
- 1 -2 stalks of celery chopped and cut
- As much chopped red onion as you like ( I use about 1/4 of a medium onion)
- 1 can of tomato soup
- 2 cans of water
- 3 packets of beef broth granules ( or 2 cans of beef broth, then eliminate the cans of water)
- salt and pepper
- 2 lbs of beef stewing cubes
Heat on low for 7-8 hours.
E.A.S.Y and delicious!
~Enjoy with fresh bread or biscuits
Hoping for warmer weather next week! Ready to grill on a regular basis!
