Do you love to cook on cool days?  Days in which you are indoors with lots to do really but you love to cook?  I do.  I thought I would share this with you maybe it will warm you on these cold days.

 Browning Lean Stew Beef.  
Use lots of paprika for added flavor as well as color.

everything taste so great. It is a red covered Le Creuset and 
everything that is cooked in it is delicious!

Sauteed the chopped onion & garlic

  1. This looks so delicious Dolly. On cold winter days, nothing can beat a beef stew...just the way you did. Perfect:)

  2. It has been so cold!
    I have been making soups and bread.
    Your stew looks great!

    1. Hi Sandra!
      Happy New Year to another beautiful friend! Hasn't it been cold! Whew, I have spent more than enough time lounging wrapped up in front of the fireplace that's for sure. Hope you are staying warm. Thank you for the compliment. It was delicious. Wish we could share with all what we cook..that would be great. Have a great weekend!

  3. OH my goodness Dolly~
    This looks so yummy I bet it was delicious too.

    1. Hello Marissa!
      How are you? So good to hear from you! I wish I could share some of this with you! Happy New Year to you sweet beautiful friend.

  4. Ooh delicious, Dolly, and a great idea to keep warm as well. I love double-duty things like this where you get more than great result. We are not too cold here in England, it is just very wet, but we have heard that it is fiercely wintery in the US so we are thinking of you.
    Best wishes from the UK!

    1. Hi Alison,
      It is so good to hear from you! I think of you and visit your blog often. Best wishes to you and I look forward to hearing from you again and a great new year is ahead for us dear friend!

  5. Soup is the best option for cold days. Our favorite is a creamy potato chowder in the crockpot. Thick and filling. But your recipe looks awesome to use up some of the venison in the freezer. Thanks! Stevie @ ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com

    1. Hi Stevie,
      Yes, I love soup too. Hope you enjoy the recipe if you cook your venison. Thanks for taking the time to comment! Love yuor blog.

  6. There's something so warm and comforting about carrots and potatoes in stew, I like them better than the meat!

    1. Hey Kathy,
      I sure do agree and I think you are right about the carrots and potatoes!
