Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew
This was a DELICIOUS beef stew recipe we fixed recently to enjoy during this extra cold weather we've been having around here (I tried to get a picture showing the light dusting of snow that was on the ground). I didn't have all of the vegetables called for in the recipe (I probably only had half of the carrots, and no mushrooms), but otherwise followed the recipe ingredients as listed below. It was so tasty! My husband is not a big soup / stew fan, but he ate this one up in no time - leftovers went fast. It was wonderful served with a loaf of Irish Brown Soda Bread!
The original recipe called for a 1.5 tsp of black pepper - I probably added maybe a little more than 1 tsp, and found the taste to be fairly "sharp" - it definitely had a peppery bite to it. My husband really liked it that way, and I thought the flavor was good, but if you're not a pepper fan maybe start with 1/2 tsp and add more to taste.
This will stick to your ribs, and leave you feeling warm and comforted on a cool evening.
