It has taken me an eternity to find a classic beef stew recipe that reminds me of the one my mom made in childhood. The closest I have come is buying a packet of flavoring at the store, but I'm always wanting to make a homemade version. I always fear that the packets will disappear.

This recipe was one I had clipped from a pile of hoarded food magazines (although not a Food Network one) and so I no longer have any idea what magazine it came from and cannot attribute it like I wanted to. If it looks familiar to you, let me know. I always want to properly give credit to whomever created a recipe. Especially when the recipe is as amazing as this one is!

It was precisely what I was hoping for, in that it tastes just like the beef stew of my childhood. It has all the right veggies and the big hunks of meat and potatoes. It's the perfect meal for fall and winter. I can't wait to make it this fall and winter over and over again!

If you like chili more than stew, check out this Titletown Tailgate Chili that feeds a crowd! This Gnocchi Beef Stew from Ciao Florentina is served with a smoky paprika gravy and a hint of clove which sounds absolutely wonderful and I definitely want to try it soon.
