Beef Stew

(Sorry for bad pics, taken at night.)

ED: Hey guys! Doesn’t this photo look absolutely mouth watering? Like happy buffaloes wallowing in a muddy paddy field. Actually that doesn’t sound appetizing at all. (hahaha) But i promise it definitely taste better then that! Tender juicy beef chunks which falls apart with a prob of the fork (Sighh..) Beef tendons that dissolves in your mouth like beefy marshmallows (Moans) and crusty toasted bread dunked into rich flavorful beef gravy. (@$%# YESSS!) Foodgasm.
