  1. Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a large pot; cook stew meat in the boiling water until cooked through and water has completely evaporated, 30 to 45 minutes, skimming off any accumulated fat from top as needed.
  2. Stir tomato paste into the cooked stew meat until coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Add 4 cups water, turnips, salt, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Mix lemon juice, maple syrup, and sugar into stew meat mixture; reduce heat to medium and simmer until reduced, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.

I made this recipe as written (including fresh lemon juice and real maple syrup). First off, the beef in the recipe turned out super tender, which is wonderful. This stew was was my first time...

I really liked this recipe. My 2 year old didn't :( but I was anticipating that. My man really loved it, he had 2 very large portions. I will be making this again. :) I didn't add the maple sy...

This stew is delicious. It's very much along the lines of comfort food. If you like turnip, you'll love this stew.
