5 Soups and Stews Any Guy Can Make

Beef Stew for an Evening with the Guys

Beef stew could easily be considered the manliest of stews. Sure, it can be enjoyed by just about anyone, but it's really little more than a bowl of flavorful meat. There are some vegetables in there, too, but this stew definitely falls into the "man food" category. A good beef stew recipe always contains -- at the very least -- potatoes, tomatoes, onions and maybe garlic. This recipe for The Best Beef Stew has sausage and beef. Best of all, it's cheap and easy to prepare, making it a perfect choice to serve any time you're looking to have a few guys over to watch a game or play some cards.
