It’s been cloudy and gloomy here in San Diego the last few days, so I think we’re due for some comfort food. Last time I made Beef Stew, Cate GOBBLED it up! Hopefully other toddlers out there will follow suit…always nice to find something they’ll eat!
This recipe is from my mom, who is notorious for giving non-recipe-recipes, where you have to guess amounts, etc. Despite the lack of direction, it IS easy to make. Let me know if you have questions! Note: I put the carrots and celery in before the potatoes so the potatoes don’t get too mushy, but some people don’t mind it and like how the potatoes thicken the stew.
- beef stew meat / round steak (appx amount: 1 1/2 lb)
- butter/olive oil
- onion (I chop 1/2 of an onion)
- beef broth (appx 4 Cups; mom uses beef concentrate and water, I have bouillon)
- flour/water thickening
- salt & pepper to taste
Brown the meat and onions. Add broth to cover meat and simmer for a few hours. Add vegetables. When they’re not quite done, add thickening. Season.
