Beef Stew Recipe for Two

By

Here's an easy beef stew for two, made with lean beef round or lean chuck, along with vegetables and herbs. Thanks to Tonya for sharing this beef stew recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb stew beef, lean chuck or beef round
  • 2 medium carrots sliced
  • 2 small potatoes, diced
  • 1 small onion, cut in wedges
  • 3 tb flour
  • 2 TB vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and minced
  • 1 small whole bay leaf (optional)
  • dash oregano
  • dash rosemary
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of flour mixed with about 1/2 cup of cold water

Preparation:

Coat stew meat with 3 tablespoons of flour. Brown in vegetable oil until quite dark but not burnt (the color on the outside will give color to the stew broth). Drain well. Add to slow cooker/Crock Pot with vegetables, spices and enough water to cover. Cover. cook on low 6-8 hrs. Can add whatever vegetables you like. I've been known to get the minestrone blend from Schwanns and put in there... or use frozen mixed vegetables instead of the carrots and potatoes. During the last 30 min of cooking.. fish out the whole bay leaf and turn up on high. When boiling, stir in a mixture of 2 TB flour and about 1/2 C water. Cook until slightly thickened.
