    Domestic Goddess's Note:

    I've been making this stew for over 30 years. It can be made with either beef or venison. A friend of my daughter's really likes this stew. He even told me... "It's the best stew he's ever had!" Needless to say I was quite flattered by his compliment!

    3. 3

    7. 7
      Add the hot water, bouillon granules, thyme, bay leaf, lemon juice, and whole cloves.

      Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 2 hours.

      *Note: Sometimes you'll only need 3 tablespoons of flour, mixed with 1/3 cup cold water to thicken the stew. Also, if wanting to add peas to the stew, add the frozen peas within the last 20 minutes of cooking time (while the vegetables are simmering).
