Hearty Beef Stew

This recipe smells heavenly as it's cooking right now. I don't even like meat, but I might have to eat some of least the veggies, anyway. (-;

Here's my recipe:

  • 2 pounds stew beef (I used some of the front quarter meat that is really tough)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire Sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Dash of ground ground cloves
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
Toss meat with flour to coat. Heat oil in bottom of a dutch oven. Brown meat on all sides in hot oil. Add water, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion, salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, and cloves. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Add carrots and celery. Cover and cook 30 to 40 minutes longer. If you want it thicker, in a separate bowl, combine 1/4 cup water and cornstarch until smooth. Mix with a little hot liquid and return mixture to pot. Stir and cook until bubbly.
