Beef Stew

Well, it’s finally getting chilly in Los Angeles….yes that mean a dip into the 60’s.  I can’t believe that I lived in New York City for 10+ years, I’ve lost my ability to handle cooler weather.  Now that we are having this cooler weather, I decided to bring out the slow cooker and this week I made beef stew (I called in Beef Bourguignon in the video, but it’s more like a beef stew ;-)) and just had to share it.  So, I made it live on Periscope on Monday, if you’re on Periscope please follow me so that you can catch my next live endeavor.  You can find me at:  https://www.periscope.tv/GFAvenger  So the Periscope and the recipe are below.
