Basic Beef Stew

Basic Beef Stew

  • Beef cut into bite sized cubes (I use the marked down London broil from my local store – you know the last date meat that I thrown in the freezer specifically for soups and stews)
  • 4 large carrots
  • 4 large potatoes or 8 small red potatoes
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 3 gloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/ red onion chopped
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 T of fresh rosemarry
  • 1T of fresh oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 1 can of peas or 1 cup of frozen peas (I use 1 cup of freeze dried peas)

Add all ingredients to a large crockpot and cook for 4-6 hours on high, stirring ever few hours. Make sure that you water covers the potatoes (peas will float)  Serve with salad and loaf of bread.
