absolute best beef stew, Member linphelps

There are so many recipes to try so I have VERY select few recipes that I'll make again. This is one that I've added to that list. This beef stew was the absolute best I've made yet. I followed the recipe except for one addition since we like a little spice in most of our foods. I added one diced jalapeno pepper. Oh, and I had an 8oz container of button mushrooms and threw that into the crockpot during the last half hour of cooking. Simple yet the most flavorful beef stew ever! Also had some avocados which I sliced and added to each serving, giving it a nice additional freshness. Excellent!
