Beef Stew

I created this dish on a whim, and boy am I glad I made it! I was craving beef stew, and remembered talking with a person in the grocery store about using steaks for beef stew. I had ran into a great sale of buy 1 get 2 free and wasn’t sure of the cut of steak. I had never had it before, but a fellow shopper said that they used them on the grill and also in the crock pot! This stew was even better the next day!
