looking to make a simple stew
Simple stew. Brown your beef on all sides and remove from pan. Add a lot of chopped onions and stir for 5 to 10 minutes. Add chunks of carrot and return beef to pan. add a bottle of beer or beef cube or both, to come about 1/2 way up the sides of the meat. Turn heat up untill the liquid simmers, then place a tight lid on and turn heat to low for 2 hours. To thicken, mash 1 Tbsp butter with 1 Tbsp flour, add to pot a bit at a time until you get it thickened a bit.
Definition of simple is open to so many interpretations. This stew is amazing in flavor and the tenderness of the beef, which is why we love it at our home. ttp://food52.com/recipes/2962_secret_ingredient_beef_stew
