My sister gave this recipe to me several years ago. My sister and I would fixed it for my Dad, Mom, and Aunt Ann on Saturday while they were watching football on TV. After my Dad passed I moved in to help take care of my Mom who has Alzheimer's. Now when it is cold or snowing, we fix Shady Rest Beef Stew and talk about all the great times we had.
