1 pkg. BeefStew Meat
4 large red potatoes
1 bag of peas & carrots, and string beans
1 onion
2 stalks of celery
4 beef bullion cubes 

Breading for the meat:
1 cup of flour
Seasoned Salt, Accent, Pepper, Garlic, Meat tenderizer,  Onion Seasoning

First bread the meat & fry it until it's half way cooked.  (I usually do that in the same pot I'm going to put everything in.  Then once it's half done I put in the vegetables with a cup of water.  Quarter red potatoes & slice the onion.   Put in the 4 beef bouillon cubes now let simmer (covered) for an hour (stirring every now & then).  After the hour of simmering take a glass of cold water & mix some of the already seasoned flour. I'd say four heaping tablespoons (until the water is almost white after stirring).  Pour into stew making a thicker gravy.  Let simmer for about half hour to an hour.  I usually add more season salt to taste.

So now all you have to do is sign our linky to lead us and/or our guests to you to swap a recipe.  Check them all out, and we'll check yours.  If you don't want to write it all down & know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!  Enjoy and Bona Petite!!!  Thanks for cooking/sharing along with us!  Nummers to all!  Perfecto

OH yummy!! when did you start adding peas.

I love doing it in the crock pot!

Lorie Shewbridge said...

Oh, that sounds delish!! Except for the peas... I do NOT eat peas in anything, I would sit there and pick out every single one, I'm like that children's book: "The Princess and the Pea."
I totally loved how you did videos for this, I may do one sometime if my breathing gets better, but it's really hard for me to breath with any activity, so for now, just photos. Your gravy comes out so good, you should have a really easy time making gravy at Thanksgiving, do it the same way. :)
Love ya, girlfriend.
