Beef Stew

7
I was cleaning the fridge the other day and stumbled up on a bunch of vegetables.  So I decided to make a beef stew. I was planing on making Ghaymen, a Persian beef stew that day (you can check out the recipe here), but the traditional beef stew with vegetables sounded better. And I was glad I did. The stew left an incredible aroma in the house for a couple of days. It is amazing how the combination of meat, vegetables and herbs create such a delicious meal without using any fats (except for olive oil), which makes it the perfect guilt free comfort food.
I always say ” I hope you get to try this recipe and enjoy it!”
But this time I’d say, I TRULY hope you will try this recipe and enjoy it! You owe it to yourself and family.
