Tonight’s dinner was a hit!

I have always preferred my beef stew on the stove top! I have tried to make it a few times in the crockpot … and have always ended up throwing it on the stove to finish it off. It just never comes out right for me. I just don’t know what I am doing wrong?!?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ I love to caramelize the meat before starting my soup! It just gives an added layer of flavor and love to my dinner. There is something that says fall when beef stew is cooking all day on the stove top. I whipped up this delicious dinner quickly between my errands today and left it cooking on low all day. I also prepped my mom’s potatoes for my husband to throw in the oven while we were at Taekwondo. This meal came together in just minutes when we got home tonight and was so warm and yummy. I couldn’t wait to get the girls to bed and share it with all of you. I always wondered what made my moms potatoes so amazing… and I could never get them right…. now I know the secret ingredient and I’m going to share it with all of you. It’s vinegar!!!!! Yes and they are the best roasted potatoes you will ever eat!!!! Trust me!!! Once you try them please reach out to me and let me know what you think! 🙂
