Stew Night

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!
