Savory Beef Stew

Cold winter nights are coming to a end. Or they should be. It's snow right now on this Monday morning.  In fact, we are under a winter weather advisory.  Fun Fact - Its snowed or iced every Monday since Jan 28th.  Where was all that snow during December and early January when I wanted to go skiing???
Before spring arrives I wanted to share one of my favorite go to winter recipes. Nothing is better on a cold night than coming home to a cozy house and smelling a hot dinner cooking. This stew is super simple and I love that it is cooked in the crock pot. I throw the ingredients in in the morning and then when M comes home a hot and filling dinner is waiting. Win! Pair it with a loaf of homemade bread(tutorials coming soon) and you ave a winning combination. :) Enjoy while you wait for spring to arrive.

1 lb stew meat
3 medium potatoes
4 carrots
4 cups beef both (4 teaspoons beef bullion and 4 cups hot water)

Wash and skin carrots and potatoes. Chop into bite size pieces. Place all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 4-6 hours. It's that easy! Pair with crackers and homemade bread. Enjoy!
