Caribbean Beef Stew

I was noticing that I have made an Argentine Beef Stew and Greek Beef Stew.  Now, I have this lovely Caribbean Beef Stew to share.  Wait a minute....  No regular beef stew?  I'll get on that ASAP!

Do you make beef stew?  It's a hearty, one bowl meal that's easy especially in a crock-pot!

I love the different varieties I have made so far.  The Argentine stew has a sweetness from the fruit.  However, this Caribbean stew had a bit of a kick to it that I loved!  The richly spiced tomato base of the Greek stew with the feta cheese was also awesome!  I can't really decide....  Try them all and tell me what you think!
