Summer Beef Stew - Wellborn 2R Beef

Summer Beef Stew

This recipe is from ranch cowboy Chris Littlefield’s wife, Dee Ann. This is how her grandma used to make it and bring it in a big Dutch oven and set on coals to finish cooking while the cowboys were working at the branding corrals. She would put a big batch of sourdough rolls in another Dutch oven and when they were done lunch was served to a big group of hungry cowboys. This stew always hit the spot. Serve with homemade bread.
