Tasty Tuesday- Paula Deen's Old-Time Beef Stew

I just made this beef stew on Sunday night.
I was totally excited it turned out so good because the last time I made a beef stew the meat wasn't even tender.

But if it's Paula Deen's recipe, you know it has to be good and it was!
Travis actually found this recipe on the Food Network website.
I decided to add potatoes to it to make it a little heartier and I am sure you can add other veggies as well.
