Mushroom Beef Stew

Mushrooms are another edible food often viewed in wooded areas. I call for crimini or oyster mushrooms here for a more robust flavor, but if those can’t be sourced, button mushrooms will work, too. Rendered into a hearty beef stew, they make exactly the kind of fare you want filling your belly when the day calls for forest frolicking!
