Beef Stew

When I make beef stew I am immediately transported back to my parents kitchen, watching my mom on a cold Saturday make this and thinking “I hope I can be that good one day”. ❤ My mom is really the reason I love to cook, because watching her you could tell she loved to feed people. So beef stew is one of those recipes I actually don't have written down, so dear blog readers this is a first 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1-2lbs stew meat
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 1-2 tsp black pepper (you can add more or less depending on your taste)
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 large carrots chopped
  • 2-3 potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 4-6 cups beef stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp thyme

Directions

Put roughly a tbs of oil in a pan, when warm put in strew meat. Sprinkle with flour and pepper. Saute until brown. De-glaze with beef stock, make sure to scrap the bottom of the pan. Simmer for an hour and a half to 2 hours. Add in veggies and remaining spices. Simmer for another 30-40 minutes. Serve with pasta, rice or biscuits.

Mangia!
