With the weather beginning to cool down, I've really been craving more hearty warm meals such as stew. When I came across this recipe for Beef Stew VI on AllRecipes.com, I knew it would be the perfect choice to satiate my craving.
It ended up being a deliciously thick beef stew that was very good eaten from a bowl and even poured over biscuits. I really do like that you can substitute lamb and end up creating more of an Irish stew if desired. You can also make it thicker just by adding more cornstarch or by taking the cover off for the last 15-20 minutes. I really think the longer this simmers is the better it tastes.
It has a prep time of 20 minutes and a cook time of 2 hours, for a total of 2 hours and 20 minutes. It's a beginner friendly recipe that serves 10 people. If anyone is interested in checking out the instructions, please click on the image up above.
