I adapted this recipe from an Irish Stew recipe calling for lamb. It's easy to double or triple and is a very forgiving recipe for a new cook.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Brown the beef with the onion, then add water to cover and the garlic.
  2. (I generally use 2 cloves.) Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for at least an hour.
  3. Add carrots, potatoes/turnips, one or two tsp of thyme, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Simmer covered until vegetables are tender.
  5. Add a little flour or other thickener (I reserve a little of the seasoned flour to use), bring to a boil, and set aside to cool a bit before serving.
