A few months ago, Steve McQueen, no not the old actor, actually a new twitter friend, wrote to tell me of a delicious stew recipe that he likes to make for his family. He told me to go ahead and try it, and if I liked it, I could share it with all our followers. He called it No Peek Stew. Of course, I had to ask him why he called it that and he told me it was because you were suppose to put it in a pot on the stove and forget it. And NO PEEKING until it was done!

Well, I finally got around to making this crockpot beef stew this past Sunday and it was a huge hit. I did wind up using my crockpot to cook it in so I guess you could say I cheated a little because my crockpot has a glass lid. But, scout’s honor Steve, I didn’t peek!
