The DIY Guy is in a pool league with 5 other guys - they call themselves Da Guys. It started quite a few years ago with some guys who lived in the neighborhood and even though everyone moved (some even an hour away), they still get together. Houses are rotated about once a month and the host prepares a meal, snacks and some tasty beverages. Last night was John's turn and he (yep him not me) made this beef stew recipe that we have had for over 30 years from our friend Jim. It is always a hit with the Da Guys and since it is s-t-i-l-l winter in these parts, I'm sure it hit the spot!
