Old-Fashioned Beef Stew
It's a good recipe. I make mine like my grandmother's though. Cut or buy beef the same, but cut the onion into quarters (they separate and get so sweet and flavorful). Brown flour covered meat in the oil. I do not shake off excess flour - it helps make the gravy. I don't use mushrooms. (NO mushrooms in stew! lol)..when brown add 2 cups water & beef broth (ready made cubes or powder like Herb-Ox)and quartered onions and a couple of cloves of garlic (you don't need to mince it integrates into the gravy (.. add celery if you must - I just don't like it).. lower heat to simmer and cook for an hour or so. Meanwhile cut potato into bite size chunks; cut carrots (or buy baby carrots and use whole) into chunks. Add to pot after an hour or so and simmer for another hour. Then add peas and corn (cooked according to directions (like Frozen Birds Eye Corn and Birds Eye Peas. Cook a few minutes until heated through. If gravy needs to thicken add butter & flour rolled together ( roux) and cook a little longer. During cooking add pepper & salt to taste.
