Hearty Beef Stew

So, I finally did it.  I got a picture of my beef stew so that I could get the recipe recorded on my blog.  Then when I went to edit it. . . wow! when you enlarge the image of your crock pot on your monitor, it doesn't look quite as great as you thought it did when you snapped the picture!  Alas, I am not a photographer.  In truth, a hurried snap on my phone is as good as you're going to get on this blog!  Please go ahead and try this recipe, though.  It really is delicious!

Please note:  this makes a large amount.  Be prepared to freeze some or halve the recipe if you don't have a large crew to feed like I do!  Also, I do not cook with onion as my husband cannot tolerate it.  By all means, add some onion if you like!

Hearty Beef Stew  (influenced by this recipe)

3 pounds stew meat
4 cups beef broth
6 oz. can tomato paste
3-4 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
20 or so baby carrots, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine in crock pot and cook on low for 8-9 hours.  Stir every now and again if possible.
