Is there anything better or more comforting on a cold day than a nice big bowl of soup or stew?! While Phoenix doesn't necessarily have the weather and temperatures like other parts of the country, let me assure you, that anything below 75 degrees is considered cold when you live in the middle of the desert and are used to temperatures well over 100 degrees most of the year!

While I am used not someone who gets cold easily - I have had to kick the heat up in the house a bit because I have been freezing cold!! I'm blaming it on el niño! I don't know about you, but I love, love, love making soup when the weather is cold and this Best Ever Beef Stew is a family favorite! My family comes running when they know this is on the table!

It's not often that we have the same food or recipe more than once every couple of months .... or longer. Really, it's nothing of us to have a dish once or twice a year. Yes, once or twice a year - never to be seen or heard of again until next year! This Best Ever Beef Stew really is the best. It's so comforting and hearty - and the perfectly seasoned broth makes you want to slurp it up! Not only have I been craving this dish, but I have been wanting it so bad that we've had it every week in December! Believe me, that doesn't happen very often!

I love serving this Best Ever Beef Stew with The Best Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits. Mmmmm. It makes me hungry all over again for this stew just thinking about it!
