Beef Stew (Garlic and Rosemary style)
In our house my husband Tom usually makes the beef stew. It’s really nice that he likes to cook and he’s actually good at it. Stew is one of his favorite wintertime comfort foods.
A tradition that started when the kids got to be teenagers, was that they got to pick what they had or what restaurant they went to for their birthdays. This carried over to Tom and me as well.
This year, Tom decided he wanted to stay home, not go anywhere and he was planning to make stew and black raspberry pie.
I decided to surprise him and make the stew for him, hoping that it meant his stringent standards, as he’s the pro stew-maker in our house.
Side note: He did make the pie, a few days before, so I decided to make the Peach Cobbler as his birthday treat, per our daughter, Ashlie’s request.
I put this in the crockpot, but if you wanted to cook on the stovetop, it would work just fine too! This smelled sooooooo good cooking. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.
