Beef and Onion Stew

"Few things can soften winter's bite better than a hearty stew, and this one is guaranteed to tame even the coldest winter day! The recipe has its origins in Germany and is familiar throughout central Missouri - home to many German families. It's great for what I call a 'one-pot' meal."

You can't even taste the onion! This is so good & easy to make, except it does take time chopping up the onions by hand. The meat was tender & stew was flavorful. This is a keeper recipe.
