I have a special treat for you today. As the weather starts to shift and get colder, now is when I like warm and hearty food that can be made in large batches and reheated later. When I eat this stew I am reminded of cold winters in St. Louis as a little kid when my mom would make this on the stove to simmer all day.
This is a hearty beef stew recipe that is reminiscent of my mother’s beef stew but for the crock pot. Place all the ingredients in the crock pot, give it a quick stir, and leave it to cook all day. Believe me, you and your family will not be disappointed with this stew. Leftovers can be frozen or refrigerated to enjoy on another day.
Today is such a chilly fall day in Chicago—cloudy, windy, and the smell of snow on the air. There is even talk of freezing rain and it is only October. I love making chili on cold, gloomy days like today. The smell of the spices brings happiness to my soul.
I have noticed lately that chili comes in all varieties and textures. I have always prided myself on my thick and hearty chili that I always serve over rice or spaghetti. I recently had the opportunity to taste my brother’s chili. His chili was vastly different than the one that I had been making for years. His was a soupy, spicy chili that was both filling and satisfying.
I have combined the two recipes to make this awesome chili. This beefy chili is scrumptious and very satisfying for those cold fall days. Serve it over rice, spaghetti, or by itself with cheese and sour cream. You will not be disappointed.
