Certified Wife Cooked: Beef Stew

Before I got married, I promised myself to be a good, loving and caring wife to my husband, and because of that I want to start our week right. I prepared something special for him, I cooked Beef Stew for our lunch today and I’m proud to say that the taste is awesome! (nagbuhat ba naman ng sariling upuan..hihi) But I swear it’s perfect.

I got this recipe from my favorite blogger,panlasangpinoy.com. This dish needs a lot of patience to balance the taste of all the ingredients. Beef Stew is one of my favorite Filipino dishes. I was surprised when I perfectly made it. Woohooo!!! Like what panlasangpinoy author says, “It is simple yet all the flavors work in harmony.”
