My family loves this stew
"I love this. I added sliced baby bella mushrooms, sliced my garlic thin and added a pinch of red pepper flakes which complemented this dish nicely. Also I used stir fry beef which after seasoning, I coated with flour. It needed only an hour simmer time to get tender. At the end, I thickened the broth with 2 tablespoons of corn starch mixed with a little water. My stomach is still smiling."- stanporter1
1. In a stock pot over medium heat, add the vegetable oil. Season the beef with salt and pepper (to your liking) . Brown the meat for about 6 to 8 minutes stirring occasionally.
2. Add the onions, celery and garlic. Continue to cook until the vegetables are wilted and golden (about 6 minutes). Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
3. Add the stock, deglaze the pan if needed. Add the potatoes and carrots. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer, coer and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is very tender, stirring occasionally.
4. Remove 1 cup of stew into a blender and blend to make a thick rue. Add the rue back into the stew and let thicken. Season to taste.

Jackiechan042003 4 months agoVery yummy stew! I did however change it a bit. I added some rosemary and parsley, and instead of making a rue (because I felt lazy) I used one packet of Knorr brown gravy with one cup of water.

sandybrown1956 1 year agoGood basic recipe. I dredged the meat in seasoned flour before browning, doubled the onion and garlic, used unpeeled, red potatoes and cut broth down to 4 cups. I put everything in the crockpot and let it go all day. A few minutes before serving, I stirred in a dash of worchestershire sauce, and a cup of frozen peas.

lolahbf 1 year agoI enjoyed this immensely. I like the idea of blending some of the vegetables to make it thicker.
pintomcguinness 1 year agoVery nice. I added some red wine and some thyme into the stock for added flavour and it was a big hit.
Mdlebou 1 year agoThe flavor was ok, it didn't turn out like I thought it would. It smelled like a Chinese or stir fry dish, won't make again
