rainy day comfort

Today is a little out of the ordinary here at a home in the making. In a nod to the dreary and wet weather we've been experiencing, I wanted to share with you guys one of my ultimate comfort foods. Beef stew. I rarely eat beef, but this stew is just so good. And so perfect in the winter.

It's Chris' Grandmother's recipe. Aren't Grandmother recipes always the best? And this one is so, so, easy.

Beef Stew

- 2-3 Baker's potatoes
- 2 pounds stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes (I buy pre-cubed)
- 5 carrots, sliced
- 1 large onion (I often throw in two. yum)
- 3 stalks celery, diced
- 1 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes
- 1/2 c. quick cooking tapioca
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Layer everything into crockpot in above order, starting with potatoes.
Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours, or on high for 5 to 6 hours.

That's it! We often throw it together before work in the morning. The smell that greets you upon arriving home after a long day at the office is amazing.

  1. The tapioca is an interesting add. Did you make the biscuits yourself?
