Beef Stew


2 lbs stew meat
½ c. flour
3 Tbs shortening
1 onion, chopped {or 1 tbs onion powder}
4 carrots, sliced
3 potatoes, cubed
{any other vegetables you like can be added}
3 Tbs minced garlic
2 bay leaves
2 Tbs parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp pepper
4 c. beef broth, or beef consume


Dredge meat in flour. Brown in shortening in skillet.
Add to slow cooker with all other ingredients.
Cover; cook on Low 10-12 hours or High 5-6 hours.

{You can also make this on the stove top, let the meat simmer for an hour or so in the beef broth and spices, then add the veggies in the last hour or two. Make sure it stays on low though, so you don't burn it or lose all your broth. If it's too thin in the end, make a roux in a separate pan and whisk in about a cup of the broth, then whisk that back into the stew pot.}
