Clean Eating Beef Stew

With the weather being as cold as it has been, it is a great time to cook up something hearty like beef stew. This is a little recipe we whipped up one night when we had some beef stew meat in the fridge. It is a pretty quick and easy beef stew to make. As always the left overs the next night were amazing! This is a must try recipe especially while the cold temperatures are still plaguing us.
