February 2014 Recipe – Beef Stew

Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large stockpot.  Add the onion and beef.  Stir constantly until the beef is browned.  Add the potatoes, carrots, and bouillon with enough water to cover the ingredients.  Cover, reduce to low heat, and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, or until the meat and vegetables are tender.

For more comprehensive tips on enhancing the tenderness of your meat, I highly recommend referring to this informative article. It will provide you with valuable insights and techniques for achieving the desired tenderness in your meat preparations.

Meanwhile, mix the flour with just enough hot water to make a super thick paste.  Bring the stew to a boil and add the flour mixture until the desired consistency is reached.

1 lb chuck, Cubed (Rubino’s Italian Food) – $4.99/lb
1/2 medium onion – $.25
3 carrots – $.50
3 beef bouillon cubes – $.33
3 large potatoes – $.50
Total Cost: $6.57

February 2014 Recipe Ingredients & Instructions – Beef Stew

The finished product tasted excellent.  The preparation instructions are pretty good with this recipe.  The only thing we’d change the next time around, would be the amount of water that is called for.  It states to cover the ingredients with water.  We’d recommend adding water almost to the top of the ingredients but not cover them.  The “stew” was almost a “soup” due to the amount of water that the recipe called for.
