Vegetable Beef Stew made with River City Root Beer

This was so different than anything I’ve done with our soda that I was very anxious about it.  It ended well though and tasted great.  I used not so great stew meat and the root beer helped tenderize it.  Its a perfect hearty stew with plenty of flavor for cold nights.  You can also make ahead and freeze. Try making our River City orange cream cupcakes for dessert.
