Bob made some steak for dinner on Sunday and it was really tough so he was getting ready to toss it but I told him to save it and I would make some stew out of it and it would probably soften up after being in a crock pot all day and it did! This recipe comes from “Family Fresh Meals” and was easy and delicious, a perfect winter dinner.
2 pounds stew meat, cut into bite size pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper (I did 1/2 teaspoon)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, sliced (I used 4)
2 – 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
6 oz can tomato paste
32 oz beef broth
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cups baby carrots
4 – 5 small red potatoes, cut into bite size pieces, about 3 cups (I used Russet potatoes because that’s what I had)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon oregano
1 cup frozen peas (didn’t have any)
1 cup frozen corn
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup water
1 Combine all ingredients except last 4 in crock pot and cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 – 7 hours.
2 About 30 minutes before serving, mix flour and water together and pour into crock pot. Mix until well combined. (I forgot to do this.) Add peas and corn and cook for 30 minutes.
