Coffee Beef Stew

For all of you that read my blog regularly, you know that I’m a big coffee lover.  Coffee, coffee, coffee.  All the time. Every day.  I have a coffee marinade recipe that I use for steak, and I was really craving it the other day.  My only problem was I didn’t have any steak in the house.  I did however have some stewing beef, and so I thought I’d be able to alter it a bit to use it to make a beef stew.  It added such great flavor and was so tasty, I thought I would share it all with you.Coffee Beef Stew
