It's a good day for some hearty stew! Grab your slow cookers….

It's been a while since I have made this recipe….have you tried it yet?

   Recipe should make about 8 cups.

 Not My Mother's Beef Stew
1 lb round steak cut in about 1" cubes or to your preference.
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 onion chopped
3/4 cup celery, chopped
3/4 lb potatoes, cut to your preference.
6 carrots, sliced
10 fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4 tsp. rosemary
1 bay leaf, crushed
1 tbsp. minced garlic
10 oz green beans
1 - 14.5oz can petite diced tomatoes
3 cubes Herb Ox Bouillon (this brand is gluten free and has no MSG)
2 cups water
1 tbsp. tapioca flour (use regular flour if gluten free isn't necessary)
2 tbsp. cold water

Brown meat in hot oil for 3-5 minutes.
Transfer to a slow cooker.
Add all ingredients except the flour and cold water. Stir.
Combine flour and cold water in a container and mix well. Add to stew. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours, or on high for 7-8 hours.

Ready to cook all day.

Serve up and enjoy.

 I suggest serving this stew with some of my incredibly flaky biscuits.

Hmmm…I wonder if anyone will have room for dessert?  : )
