Hawaii-Style Beef Stew

6

Chunks of meat and vegetables simmered in liquid served with rice. I made this before to see how it turns out (added more carrots and potatoes), and how well it freezes. I tell you homemade is always the way to go, and that it is definitely freezer friendly. It is meant to be served with rice, but my family has tried it with sour dough bread and naan. I suppose serving it with rice is best, but you can try and serve it with others.
