This meal is perfect for the meat and potato lover in your family. The longer it cooks the better it is!
Start off with about 2 lbs. of stew meat. Pot roast is a must for this dish. When cutting it up, leave on some of the fat…that’s where all the flavor is!
Brown your meat in olive oil with 1 cut up onion until brown.
Do not drain!!! Add 2 cups of flour and stir until all the flour is incorporated. Next add:
- 4 cups of beef broth
- 2 celery stalks – diced
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 tbls of Worcestershire sauce
- crushed red pepper flakes
- kosher salt and pepper
Let simmer for at least 2 hours or more stirring occasionally.
Add 3 peeled-diced carrots and 4 peeled-diced potatoes. You may need to add about a cup of water at this point.
Let simmer for 1 hour. (make sure you take out the bay leaves before serving)
If you want to make this in the crock pot follow the same directions but cook on low for 8 to 10 hours adding the carrots and potatoes the last hour.
You will go back for seconds!!!! Don’t forget your yummy crusty bread for dipping!!! Enjoy!
