A very good beef stew recipe! I used a regular sweet onion, diced, and 2 regular-sized carrots; no snap peas. I browned the meat in bacon fat instead of vegetable oil (since some beef stew recipes have bacon in them, I thought it would be good for the flavor) and it was very tasty! This will be my new standard recipe for beef stew!

This was an easy, tasty, and healthy stew. I used regular stew meat and yellow onions with carrots, celery, new potatoes, and parsnip as well as a few extra seasonings, including a pinch of powdered cayenne pepper and a 1/2 t. of sugar. The thickened gravy was especially good.
