cubed beef stew meat
1/2 (16 ounce) package
baby carrots, chopped
The stew was great! What I did was: I made a mixture of flour (about a cup) and rosemary (a Tablespoon or so) and rolled the cubes of meat in it before I started to cook them. Then, instead of shortening, I used butter as I had no shortening on hand. I also added more onion, used 6 or 7 regular carrots that I cut up instead of the baby carrots, and cut the potatoes a bit smaller than called for. Other than those (minor) changes, I followed the recipe to a "Tee". It was great, but next time, I might try using more vegetables: maybe some chopped up tomatoes and peas to make it a little heartier. A great base for a beef stew though! :)
Delicious. I did not use the vegetable shortening or the butter. It came out perfect and the whole pan of soup was eaten in one night since my family liked ti so much.
My boyfriend and I decided to make this for dinner tonight. This is an excellent base recipe for stew. We wanted to experiment with the cooking technique which resulted in slightly over-cooked beef, which was our own fault, however we both agreed the flavors of the "broth" were delicious as well as the veggies. The only other thing we did differently was add a little cornstarch to thicken it up a bit, but that's just our personal taste. We will definitely make this again but next time we are going to slow cook it and see how that comes out. Over-all, a good, simple recipe.
It was good! I read the reviews, and I also dredged the meat in flour, salt and pepper before brownin, and I did not drain it. I used whole carrots instead of baby carrots.
this was great! my first ever stew. The potatoes definitely should have been cut up smaller but i had it for dinner and lunch for 4 days. Yummy.
