Mama's Beef Stew

Fall is in the air. It's time to bring out Mama's Beef Stew. There's nothing better that a warm bowl of hearty goodness on a cool crisp fall evening.

Mama's Beef Stew

You'll Need:
1 - 2 lbs beef stew meat
2 TBS worcester sauce
1 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1/2 tsp dried marjoram, crushed
fresh ground pepper, to taste
salt, to taste

4 medium red potatoes, cubed
3 medium carrots, sliced
2 cups fresh (or frozen) green beans, cut
1 medium onion, chopped
diced tomatoes (one 14.5 ounce can)
2 cups beef broth (I love the "Better Than Bullion" brand)

The Preparation Method:

Heat the skillet. Plop in the beef chunks. Start browning.

Add a few squirts of worcester sauce, herbs, salt and pepper. Continue browning.

Add browned beef to the bottom of your crockpot.

Start layering the veggies. Begin with the densest item. The potatoes.

Then the carrots.

Next up... green beans.

Then the items with the most flavor to share get placed on top... the onions.

Pour on a can of diced tomatoes.

Top it all off with 3 cups of beef broth.

Turn Ol' Bessie on High Heat. Put a lid on 'er. Let her go to work for the next eight hours.

And for our dancing selection today... watch this video to catch a glimpse of what my living room looks like on any given Friday night!

  1. I'm in the midst of making this for the second time. Sans beef. Insert tofu. Delicious! Thank you, sweet Judith. xoxo
