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.
