The best beef stew we've ever had! I've made many stews, so I know what we like and dislike in it. I omitted the worchestire sauce because it just overpowers the other flavors and we really don't care for it. I used 1/2 water & 1/2 beef broth. I also seasoned the meat/flour with blk pepper, seasoning salt, garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder then saved the leftover flour to thicken the stew with. After browning the meat, I added enough water and scraped up the bits on the bottom of the pan for added flavor, then added all the broth & water, onions and celery. For added flavor, I added thyme, rosemary, extra bay leaf and extra seasonings. I suggest when you cut up the beef, potatoes and carrots, try to make them all the same sizes and not so big. At the last hr, added the veggies, corn & peas and last minute, added the leftover seasoned flour (which was mixed w/h20 so it doesn't get lumpy when added to the hot stew). Served this with french bread and everyone loved it! This will now be our staple beef stew. Thanks
