DIRECTIONS

  • On a medium to medium-high heat, in a large skillet or dutch oven with a cover, heat the fat and cook the onions until browned.
  • While the onions are browning, mix the flour with the salt, pepper and thyme.
  • When onions are browned, remove them from the pan, set aside, and add the beef.
  • When the beef browns, replace the onions and add the flour mixture.
  • Stir to coat all.
  • Add the cider and ketchup, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Then lower the heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours more, stirring occasionally and skimming the top of the stew if necessary.
  • Add the potatoes and carrots and simmer another 30 to 45 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  • NOTE: The original recipe called for 3 tbs. bacon grease, but I prefer not using that. The butter and olive oil mixture gives excellent results.
  • Also, I always double the sauce& seasoning ingredients. If you decide to also, don't forget to double the onions, oil, butter and flour also.
