DIRECTIONS

  • make sure all the cubes of beef are cut down and that they are all the same size.
  • Brown the meat in a deep pot - I used a 4.5 qt dutch oven.
  • After all meat is browned add onion and garlic and saute them with the beef for about 5 minutes.
  • Then add the gravy and chicken stock to the pot. You may use more of less chicken stock depending on the consistency you like.
  • Add the bay leaves, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Turn the heat to low and simmer with the lid on for 45 minutes.
  • After 45 minutes has past, add the diced potatoes and put the lid on and simmer for 1 hour. You can add more broth if the stew is too thick.
  • At 1 hour and 45 minutes of cooking time, add the baby carrots. Put the lid back on and simmer for another 30 minutes.
  • After 2 hours and 15 minutes, take out the bay leaves and serve with some fluffy rice.
