Hubbys Homemade Beef Stew:

This recipe is homemade beef stew that my husband used to make to serve restaurant patrons at the Sheraton Wayfarer in Manchester, NH where he was a chef for many years. It was a very popular dinner option on the menu and many people ordered it and always gave great compliments to the chef Thomas Payne. He enjoyed being a chef and making all kinds of recipes.
