Beef Stew the Old Fashioned Way

This is a from scratch, down home, richly flavored stew with no exotic ingredients. I've used blade steak, arm roast and chuck roast for this recipe. For the vegetables, I use a combination of fresh and what I have frozen from the previous season, but use what you have on hand. I'm adding a can of tomatoes as an option, though I don't use it. Also, I cook this from start to finish in my 5 quart stock pot. This is truly a base recipe that can be adapted to your family's like and dislikes. Feel free to make it your own.
