Beef Stew

This is a well-loved you can see.  So well-loved that I cannot even believe it is not already on this blog.

I got this recipe from a friend in California. It is perfect for Sundays (or any long busy day) because you throw everything into the crockpot and leave. It is also perfect because almost everyone in my house cheers for joy when they find out that we are having it for dinner.

Beef Stew-Shelly Collins

2lbs Stew beef cubes
1/2 C. Flour
2 T. Oil
1 bay leaf
2 T. A-1 sauce
1 onion
1 cube beef bouillon

1 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. salt
1tsp. sugar
6 carrots
4 potatoes
1C. Celery
4 C. Water

* Heat oil in skillet
* Coat beef cubes with flour (I like to do it shake-n-bake style by putting the flour in a ziplock bag then putting the meat into the bag, zipping it and shaking it)
* Brown the meat in oil
* With crockpot on low,  put meat, bay leaf, a-1, onion, bouillon, seasonings and water.  Let that cook for 3-4 hours.
* Add vegetables cut up in large chunks.  Let cook until vegetables are soft.

If this stew makes most of your kids happy, it's a KEEPER. I have a hard time keeping three kids happy at dinner time. You're the best. Always
