Beef Stew with Sweet Potatoes - Fixate style

My entire family absolutely LOVED this recipe. It takes some prep and planning for time. You need to let it simmer on the stove for 2 hours. Total time is about 3 hours but most of that it is simmering and you can go do other things, like maybe workout?

This recipe is from Autumn Calabrese's cookbook, Fixate, which has the container requirements for every recipe!

She also has an online cooking show of the same name, where she shows how to make new recipes, also with container equivalents. Want to watch the show? Contact me to find out how!
