    Chef #614598's Note:

    I make this stew for my family utilizing ingredients usually rolling around in my crisper combined with on sale steak. Usually top or bottom round steak can be bought for less then half the price of prepackaged stew meat.

    3. 3
      Add meat and onions back to the pan. Add herbs, powders, bouillon and pepper (if not using stock you may need to add a couple more bouillon cubes and omit salt from recipe). Cover and simmer on low for 1 hour.

      This was really yummy! I had to add two tablespoons of flour at the end. Thank-you for posting!
