Teriyaki Beef Stew

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 6-1/2 hours

YIELD: 6 servings.

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention" I created this recipe because I had a package of stew meat I needed to use. I spotted the ginger beer in the fridge and rest was history. This stew has a delicious sweet-tangy flavor. It's nice to have a different way to serve an inexpensive meal. —Leslie Simms, Sherman Oaks, California
