Beef Stew


Here is the stew at the early simmering stage, before vegetables are added.



Ingredients

* 2 pounds stew beef (dredged in flour)
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 2 cups water
* 1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
* 1 clove garlic, peeled
* 1 or 2 bay leaves
* 1 medium onion, sliced
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon paprika
* Dash ground allspice or ground cloves
* one can of chopped tomatoes
* 3 large carrots, sliced
* 3 ribs celery, chopped
* 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions


• Dredge meat in flour and brown meat in hot oil.
• Add water, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaves, onion, salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, and allspice.
• Cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours.
• Remove bay leaves and garlic clove. Add carrots and celery. Cover and cook 30 to 40 minutes longer. • To thicken gravy, remove 2 cups hot liquid.

Oh God that looks so good. I've deferred eating all day. Now I'm really hungry. Thanks for the recipe. When I make stew it's very plain (though still tasty to me). One day I'm going to do it right and follow yours.

The flavor was really good, I must say.
