Althought I've heard that my dad has perfected crockpot beef stew, I have yet to try it myself. So, for my first attempt at beef stew I went with Tyler Florence's "Ultimate Beef Stew," which was...ultimate. Without offense to those who have served me beef stew in the past, this was the best beef stew I have ever had. I made the suggested sour cream/horseradish sauce (which was a fantastic addition!) and my first popovers. AND, I finally got to bust out my cast iron dutch oven. Love it. And, as was part of the Sunday Dinner plan, we have leftovers for at least one more evening meal.
A one pot meal!
