Teriyaki Beef Stew

 Teriyaki Beef Stew
As they say, "Invention is the mother of necessity." I created this recipe because I had a package of stew meat that needed to be used before the package date. I spotted the ginger beer in the fridge and rest is history. This stew has a delicious sweet-tangy flavor. It's nice to have a little different way to serve an inexpensive meal.—Leslie Simms, Sherman Oaks, California
