Delicious Beef Stew

Delicious Beef Stew

Lots of people love this stew. One day an old coworker of mine saw it and commented that it looked like the stew her grandma used to make. The next day, I sent some to her and she was so happy to finally find a stew that tasted just like her grandma’s.

Don’t get discouraged when you see that it takes hours to make. It is one of the easiest meals out there. Two hours of the time frame is just simmering time and you don’t even have to stir it. I like to make this meal when I have housework to do. I put it on and by the time the stew is ready the house is clean and dinner is served.

Makes: 10 fairly large servings

 Prep time: 20 Mins

Cook time: 2 hrs 20 Mins

 Total: 2 hrs 40 Mins (most of this is simmering)

Recipe below

 Directions

  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, cook beef in oil, flour, onion powder, garlic powder and ½ teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Stir well so all meat is well coated (this adds a wonderful flavor to the meat). Cook over medium heat until brown. Dissolve bouillon in water and pour into pot.  Stir in rosemary, parsley and ½ teaspoon pepper, ketchup, Worcestershire, and (optional steak sauce). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour.

2. Stir potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion into the pot. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water and stir into stew. Cover and simmer for 1 hr Or more (the longer it simmers the better the flavor).

3. Five minutes before the stew is done, add peas and/or corn and stir into soup allow stew and simmer for the last 5 mins. Remove from heat, allow to cool in bowls (bread bowls make this stew even better). Add shredded cheddar cheese on top.

Guten Appetite,

    This sounds like a great recipe. Maybe I’ll try it out with my family when I get home from college. And I might even have leftovers! Doesn’t happen often in my house.
