The temperature here has dipped below zero. Being a hearty Minnesotan I should be well seasoned to the brutal winter cold. “Should” being the key word, LOL! Besides wanting to scoop up my babies and curl under a nice warm blanket, nothing seems to warm you up better than a nice hearty, steamin’ bowl (or two) of beef stew. This is a recipe that I have adapted over the years to change with my growing family and their ever changing taste buds. This is a meal everyone in my family gets excited about. No grumbling and empty plates at the table, a mama’s dream:) Also, easy on the budget! With a few fillers like rice and bread you can easily stretch this meal to feed more without spending more. I can definitely appreciate that!
|Thinly slice 2 large onions, 4 cloves of garlic and 2 carrots.|
|In a large pan or pot heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil over
medium-high heat. When pan is hot add your chopped
veggies. Cook 5-8 minutes or until veggies are tender
|Veggies are done when they are soft and the onions are translucent.
Remove from pan and set aside. Once veggies are removed
add 2-3 more Tablespoons of olive oil in pan and bring back
up to medium-high heat.

touch we sometimes (OK, more like every time) serve crispy homemade french fries
over the top.
