My husband is a fan of stews during the winter. I can’t say I blame him, after working outside in the cold all day, warming up to a hearty bowl of flavorful stew with a crusty Italian bread is a filling and comforting way to end even the coldest winter days.
If the recent drop in temperature has got you craving beef stew too, I have a seasoning mix that will really add more flavor to your favorite beef stew recipe and warm you up during wintery evenings. This simple mix of herbs and spices enhance the flavors, while flour helps thicken your stew, making for a rich and delicious meal.
A batch of Beef Stew Seasoning Mix will season roughly 4 batches of stew made with 2 lbs. of stew meat. All you need to do is dust your stew meat with Beef Stew Seasoning Mix before you brown it, it smells AMAZING. If you are having one of those mornings and browning the meat just isn’t an option, coat the meat with the Beef Stew Seasoning Mix before you throw it in the crockpot with the other ingredients, it will still be awesome.
