What Vegetables Go in Beef Stew
The best part of vegetable beef stew, you can be in whatever vegetables you like. The base recipe calls for potatoes, carrots, and onions, but you can also put in corn, peas and green beans. In the summer time, I like to add fresh zucchini and squash.
How to Store Beef Stew
I make a giant pot of beef stew when I make it. I like to eat it for days. When I make a large pot, I take half of it and freeze for a freezer meal the next month. When storing soup or stew of any kind, it needs to be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When freezing, I like to store it in a freezer bag. The soup will lay flat which takes up less space. I write on the bag so I can see what is in the bag and when I made it.
How Long Does Hearty Vegetable Soup Last
