I don’t know about you, but as soon as the first hints of fall arrives I want to get my crockpot out and start making a warm, hearty stew.  With the fall harvest, there are so many great options to use.  My recipe for stew is pretty basic and is more stepping stone, if anything.  I start with the basics of stewing beef, beef broth and an onion soup mix and go from there.  It’s kind of like a kitchen sink version, where I basically add whatever I have available to me at the time.  Aside from the ingredients listed below, I have also used corn, butternut squash, zucchini and even canned tomatoes before.  It really depends on what you like and have available.  I find it’s hard to go wrong with stew.

After a long, cold day, it’s nice to come home to something warm and ready to go for dinner.  All you need to do is serve the stew with a nice, crusty bread and you’ve got a meal that everyone in your family can enjoy. This recipes freezes well and makes for a perfect warm me up lunch for the family on a cold winter day.
