Yummy Beef Stew

I made Beef Stew and home made wheat bread for dinner last night. It is one of our favorites. Even Lili ate several pieces of meat, some potatoes and corn out of the stew.

Week’s Favorite Beef Stew

2 T flour
1 lb stew meat
2 t olive oil
1 – 15 oz. can tomato sauce
2 ¼ c water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 t beef bouillon granules
2 gloves garlic, minced
¾ t dried, crushed basil
½ t dried, crushed thyme
2 ¼ c peeled, cubed potatoes
2 c sliced carrots
1 c sliced celery
1 c fresh or frozen corn

Cut stew meat into bite sized pieces if necessary. Place flour in plastic bag and meat cubes in bag. Shake to coat. In a large Dutch oven, heat oil and add floured meat. Stir until meat has browned. Add tomato sauce, water, onion, bouillon, garlic, basil and thyme. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until meat is nearly tender. Add potatoes, carrots, and celery. Cover and simmer for an additional 1 hour or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat and serve.
