Beef Stew

I've been cooking beef stew before but I didn't think it would be necessary to brown the meat first. I thought it will just add grease to the meat and I don't like greasy foods. But since I've seen Juliana's recipe that she posted in her blog, I thought of trying to brown the meat first and it did turned out good and it tasted better. It was a hearty and delicious meal. My hubby and I love beef stew and I cook it very often. Here's the recipe of beef stew. Try it and you'll like it.


* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 pound cubed beef stew meat
* 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 4 cups water
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 tbsp soy sauce
* 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon paprika
* 2 cups cubed potatoes
* 1 cup chopped carrots
* 1/2 lemon juice
* 2 stalks celery, sliced
* 1 teaspoons dried rosemary
* 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
* 1/2 cup frozen green beans
* 1/4 cup frozen peas
* 1 medium onion, diced
* 1 clove garlic, minced


1. Heat oil in large pot. Add beef and flour, stirring to coat beef; brown.
2. Add water, salt, and pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour.
3. Stir in potatoes, carrots (or turnips), browning sauce, and rosemary. Simmer 1-2 hours.
4. Add corn and green beans; simmer for 30 minutes longer.

Hi Lisa, it is better to brown the meat first, preferably in a pot that is non-stick. Those brown bits at the bottom of the pan gives a lot of flavor to the stew. :) I like visiting blogs like yours, it gives me lots of ideas in cooking.
Definitely Maybe!
