Old-Time Beef Stew Recipe

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

This is actually Mom's recipe, but I'm typing it on here for her. I just tried this stew for the first time today and it is delicious! Mom says that it's easy to make and that she loves it!

The ingredients:
1 lb. stew meat
1 Tbsp. oil

Brown in large pot, then add:
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 large onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
2 Tbsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper
Assorted chopped vegetables (potatoes, carrots, green beans, broccoli)
4-6 cups water

Simmer all ingredients for about 1 hour, then add 2 packages brown gravy mix (with just enough water to mix them) (Mom usually just adds one gravy mix and it still turns out wonderfully:) Serve hot with breadsticks. Makes 4 servings. (It made more like 6-8 servings for us [Lara's family]) . Note: I (Lara) also added 1 cup of pearl barley and for the vegetables I used 4 potatoes, 1 sweet potato, 1 large onion, and a head of broccoli. It turned out a little too thick, so I added another cup or two of water and a bouillon cube for flavor. The kids LOVED it!
