Thank you Paula Deen for this hearty beef stew recipe!
* The only changes that I made were: I didn’t have allspice so I did a few dashes of cinnamon and a pinch or two of nutmeg. I omitted the celery (my family doesn’t like it) and added about 7 diced potatoes. I also used 3 pounds of beef stew and cut it into smaller bite-size chunks. It will cook a little quicker and it stretches out the meat. I also kept a watch on the water to make sure it didn’t cook away and added more if needed. I also adjusted the seasoning about 20 minutes before serving and added more if needed.
Serving Suggestion: I served this with creamy rice; you can pour the stew over the rice which is really yummy and it helps the stew go further and it’s just really yummy, along with a side of buttery cornbread. Truly southern and yummy!
