Beef Stew is an old Anglo Indian/British recipe. Its similar to a beef casserole but more soupy. It is a light and easy meal to prepare and good for digestion. It can be served to people who have been sick or for little children. Its a comforting meal during winter too.

..."If My people who bear My name, humble themselves and pray and seek My presence and turn from their wicked ways, I Myself will hear from Heaven and forgive their sins..." (2 Chron. 7:14) - "You will see that in prayer you will find more knowledge, more light, more strength, more grace and virtue than you could ever achieve by reading many books, or by great studies. Never consider as wasted the time you spend in prayer. You will discover that in prayer God communicates to you the light, strength and grace you need..." (Sr Lucia dos Santos)
