    CountryLady's Note:

    Simple home-style cooking is always the best and every culture loves stew - this version is a favourite in my family! Sometimes, I'll add parsnips or turnips - at other times, I'll omit the potatoes & serve over broad noodles - and occasionally, I top it with dumplings!!

      This was an excellent beef stew. We really enjoyed it. Simmering the beef for 1 1/2 hours made the meat nice and tender, without making the vegetables mushy. Unfortunately, I didn't have a can of tomatoes in the house, so I tried this recipe without them, and we thought it was wonderful anyway. I'll try it agian with the tomatoes.

      I dipped my stew beef pieces in flour before frying to seal in the juices then proceeded as it says in the directions. The result was tender beef full of flavor, and the stew was really delicious! We really loved this recipe and will have it often in the cold months!
