In the fall, there is nothing better than a good beef stew. I'm not going to lie, it is a bit different when the weather is warm, but it was still delicious! This one is a slightly different recipe than I have used before but it turned out great! I put it on in the morning and we spent the day at the beach and when we got home it was all ready and smelled amazing. The Mushrooms really added an extra meatiness to the dish so don't skimp on those. Also, this does not freeze very good, trust me, I accidentally froze the leftovers (don't ask) and the stew was not nearly as good after I thawed and reheated.
3. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until the beef and veggies are tender. If needed, add more water. Add the thawed peas the last 20-30 minutes of cooking. Discard bay leaves and Serve. Salt and Pepper to taste.
