Warm up to Winter
with a bowl of this hearty homemade stew.
|My Mother was the best cook I ever knew.|
We were a large family to feed.
When she made stew, it always had dumplings in it.
We called them "Doughboys"
|Chop up Celery, Onion and Garlic|
1 large onion
2 celery stocks
2 garlic cloves
1 box beef broth 900ml (I use Campbell's low salt)
2 tblsp. beef bovril (optional)
1/2 tsp. savory
2 tblsp.. parsley
|Add 1 tablespoon of Flour|
to coat the meat
1 medium turnip
Mix beef cubes in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of flour.
Chop up onion, celery, garlic and mushrooms.
Add beef, onion, celery, garlic and mushrooms to pot with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Fry all together about 10 mins. turning the beef to get it browned.
Pour in beef broth, bovril, savory & parsley cover and cook on low for about 1 hr.
Add in the carrots, parsnips and turnips cook another 15 mins.
Add in the potatoes and cook another 15 mins.(string beans can also be added)
