Easy Beef Stew

Stew is the absolute perfect dinner for those cold rainy spring nights. I love the smell that fills the house and greets my family members as they are rushing in and out of the house during the weekend. Served with crusty bread and a good beer is a great way to wind down after a busy weekend.
