Lisa's Beef Stew

I have lots of friends named Lisa. Seriously, sometimes there can be 6 of them in the same room!!
Craziness I tell ya!

One Lisa gave me this recipe for her beef stew.
I have my own that we are partial to, but always willing to try a new one!

I was laughing at myself while making this because she obviously typed it as she was trying to remember it all. There would be ingredients listed in the directions that were not in the ingredients list. So, my pictures are a little whacked, but it's all good!

This recipe makes a LOT of stew! We ate it for two meals, I brought it for lunch two days, and I have another couple of servings in the freezer!

3 ½ Lb stew beef
5 Cloves garlic (crushed)
4-5 Medium onions (quartered)
2 Lbs carrots (chopped into large pieces)
6 Medium potato
2 Tsp salt
1 Tsp sugar
1 ½ Tsp pepper
½ Tsp paprika
3 Tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Bay leaves
Dash of tabasco
Dash of lemon juice
1 Cup flour
1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1. Brown stew beef in a large pot with vegetable oil for about 20 minutes
2. Add 4 cups boiling water, spices (minus lemon), garlic, and 1 onion
3. Simmer (covered) for 1 hour
4. Add carrots, potato, and rest of onions
5. Simmer another hour
6. Add lemon during the last 15 minutes of cooking
7. To thicken, shake 1 cup flour with 1 ⅓ cup cold water until there are no lumps. Slowly add to stew.


She forgot to tell me about the oil needed to brown the beef

Then I paperclipped over where it said to use potato!

Come party with me HERE!

  4. I haven't had beef stew in quite some time, but instantly salivated over this recipe. I am definitely gravitating towards stews and soups as the temperature begins to drop. Thanks for sharing!
