Luby's Cafeteria Beef Stew

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

Posted in response to a request. This recipe is from the Luby's Cafeteria 50th Anniversary Recipe Collection. The recipe calls for "boiler onions" which are small white onions. If you can't find them substitute yellow onions, cut up in wedges if necessary. Prep and Cooking time is a guesstimate!!

A W E S O M E!! I made exactly as our Miss Annie directed, including the boiler onions that I easily found in the produce department of my neighborhood grocery store! I can't believe I am the first to try this winner : ) So easy to prepare and very, very tasty! Seasoning amounts are perfect for our tastes. Your cooking and prep time is right on, Miss Annie! I am sure if I stick around Zaar long enough, I will eventually get around to preparing ALL of Miss Annie's recipes! They can't be beat! Thanks yet, again, Miss Annie!!
