DIRECTIONS

  • In a large stock pot over medium heat, melt butter or add oil to cover bottom of pan. Add onions and cook stirring occasionally until lightly caramelized. Remove onions and set aside.
  • Add more oil to pan. Dredge meat in flour and add to pan half at a time. Remove meat when well browned and deglaze pan with stock or water making sure to get all those brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • 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.
  • Remove cover stir and add celery and carrots. Recover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove cover and add potatoes. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes or until tender.
  • If gravy seem a little thin, take about 1/4 cup of hot gravy, add 1/4 cup of cold water to make it room temp and stir in 1 heaping tablespoon of flour. Stir this back into pot and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  • Serve hot with bread.
