Maple Beef Stew
Winter storms and homemade beef stew, they just go together! Here’s an easy recipe that can easily be adjusted up or down depending on how many you’re feeding.
Ingredients for Chunky Maple Beef Stew
Beef stew also freezes nicely, double the batch and freeze half in a crock pot bag for a meal on a night you’re working late! Or if you have teenagers in the house doubling it is a necessity!
Beef cubes mixed with vegetables and maple syrup
One thing to note is the cooktime is 4 hours (I found the prep time to be about 20 minutes). This could easily be made in a crockpot on slow so it cooked all day. I am making it tonight, my husband coming off second shift at the hospital will have a hot meal for once. We’re going to reheat this for supper tomorrow night although from the aroma from the kitchen I may be have midrats (midnight rations….throwback to my Navy days!)
I wish you could smell this….it’s even better then it looks!
