Fireside Beef Stew Recipe

This stew is perfect for warming up on a wintry day. It is a good dish to make when you're busy, since it's quick to prepare and doesn't need attention while cooking. Instead of noodles, I often serve it with rice.

  • 2 pounds lean beef chuck or round steak, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
