Hearty Beef Stew
January 02, 2008

This is a wonderful starter recipe. Here is my variation, as well as some of the advice I followed by others... We were out of beef broth, so I used two beef granules in two and a half cups of water. I omitted the mushrooms and added chopped up green peppers. I also added an extra potato and more carrots. Because some complained about the potatoes not being done, I "par" cooked the potatoes in the microwave (2 minutes covered in water-drained and added) I was out of teriyaki sauce so I made a simple substitute--a little bit of cooking sherry, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. It worked beautifully.. Also--to avoid the flour excess some spoke of, brown your stew meat in the 1/4 cup of flour before adding it to the crock pot. The spices I included were garlic, seasoning salt, a pack of onion soup mix, a pinch of ground cloves and patrika, salt and pepper. Enjoy!
