Grandma’s Beef Stew
Grandma's Beef Stew
This heirloom recipe is perfect for chilly fall and winter nights especially if you’re craving Grandma’s cooking! Simple, but full of flavor. Simmering the meat in bone broth gives an added richness to the dish, and an extra dose of protein. Gluten or grain free? Try cassava flour instead of white flour to dredge the meat. Need to lower your fats? Use diced chuck roast in place of the stew meat. The longer it simmers, the better! Serve a big bowl with a side of crusty, buttered french bread.
