This delicious Artichoke Beef Stew is one of my favorite rainy day comfort foods!
Yesterday was one of those DREARY days… cold, raining, windy and frankly a day to stay inside if you didn’t have anything pressing to do. Sometimes I’m really thankful for those days; it doesn’t make me feel guilty for spending a day at home. There’s nothing I love more than having a glass of wine (or a cold beer!) on a rainy weekend day while simmering a big pot of awesomeness.
I have a new love of artichokes and came up with this recipe while browsing the aisles of the grocery store. I knew I wanted to make some kind of stew or soup and I knew I wanted it to incorporate artichokes… so BAM! Some of the best things happen on a whim… LIKE THIS!
It’s chock full of all the things I love: beef, artichokes, mushrooms, carrots, onions and potatoes. And it’s not complete without a crusty hot loaf of french bread to sop the juices up with! What is your favorite comfort food to cook on a rainy day?Print
