Patty’s Beef Stew

Dinner #2 for Patty as requested, Beef Stew.

2 pounds stew beef or a cut up chuck roast (I went with the stew meat)

1 onion, diced

4 – 5 large potatoes, peeled and quartered

4 – 5 carrots, peeled and cut into slices

3 quarts hot water

3 – 4 tablespoons Kitchen Bouquet (couldn’t find this in the store, google said a good substitute was Worchestershire sauce so that’s what I used)

flour

salt and pepper

2 bay leaves

oil

Dredge the stew meat in flour seasoned with salt and pepper.  Brown the meat in oil.  Add onions and cook along with meat.  Add hot water and Kitchen Bouquet.  Whisk in (to avoid lumps) 1/4 cup flour.  Add bay leaves and cook on medium heat until meat is almost done, about 1 1/2 hours.  Add potatoes and carrots and cook until vegetables are done (other vegetables can be added here if desired).  Salt and pepper to taste.  Remove bay leaves before serving.
