Gram’s Beef Stew

(Stacee Kosaka)

  • 1 pound Beef stew meet, cubed to bite size
  • 4 carrots (sliced diagonally)
  • 4 stalks of celery (sliced diagonally)
  • ½ brown onion (bite size)
  • 1 zucchini (sliced diagonally)
  • 2 TBP Knorr beef stock (dry)
  • 1 28 oz. can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup elbow macaroni
  • 1 potato
  • 2 TBS dried oregano
  • 2 TBS dried basil
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Water
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 TBS vegetable oil

In a bowl add stew meat, salt & pepper, and flour. Coat the meat well. In a large pot, heat and add oil. Brown the stew meat (about 5 min). Add canned stewed tomatoes + 2 cans of water (use the can as your measuring cup) and beef stock. Bring to a boil. Add veggies, spices and elbow macaroni. Turn to medium low for about 1 hour. Stir occasionally so the macaroni doesn’t stick to the bottom.

Eat with crackers or over rice.
