Ready in 4 hours

A hearty meat and potatoes stew, passed down from generation to generation of Mother's, in my family. All spices, and ingredients are subject to amounts desired, as we don't usualy use measure spoons, but our hands to measure, and mouths to taste. You can make it for the picky kids, who don't like onions, or the picky kids who don't like garlic.


2 pounds Stew beef; cubed
2 can (12 oz) Beef broth
1 tablespoon Garlic; minced optional
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1 teaspoon Seasoning Salt
2 Bay leaf
1/2 bunch Carrot; chopped
1/2 bunch Celery; chopped
6 Potatoes; chopped
1 package Bisquick
1 teaspoon Onion powder; if not using chopped onion
1 Onion; chopped optional

Original recipe makes 12



1. Brown meat, with garlic OR chopped onion, and celery in a large stock pot. Add broth, water to cover meat, and all seasoning, bringing to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for aprox 2 hours.
