DIRECTIONS

  • In saucepan, brown onion and garlic in oil until almost transparent.(Can be added without browning but adds a sweeter flavor) Keep to side.
  • Mix meat by hand in large bowl. Add 1/4 cup flour and mix into meat by hand.
  • In large pot, brown meat mixture throughout, will still have pink cast to meat. Takes 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Leave all juices and meat in pan, add enough beef broth to cover meat. Bring to boil-turn down to simmer. Add browned onion/garlic.
  • Cover and simmer for 2 to 3 hours until stew meat is fork tender. (Check meat ever 30 minutes or so to add broth if needed).
  • Remove from heat and add rest of the ingredients. Stir and enjoy.
  • Yummy in the winter especially. Great for frito pies or with cornbread -- oh it's great anyways you want to eat it!
