Vegetable Beef Stew

The weather was seriously balmy today! After temps hovering around 10-15 degrees the 40's were warm! The snow? Melting. Le sigh. I heard some stories about Martin Luther King, Jr on the radio while running around today. It was interesting to learn that the famous "I have a dream" portion of his speech was off the cuff.

Eric started cooking dinner, Vegetable Beef Stew, this morning in the crock pot. He found the camera and took a picture so I could show you how it turned out. Hearty and good!
Vegetable Beef Stew
2 pkgs stew beef
3 C chicken broth
10 red potatoes (scrubbed and quartered/or halved)
1/2 bag baby carrots (cut into chunks)
1/2 C diced onions
1 garlic clove diced/mashed
1/2 C water
2 cans green beans (drained, added at the end)
2 T corn starch
Kosher salt
1 beef bouillon cube

Cook the stew meat, then add it to the crock pot. Add broth, potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic and water. Set crock pot on high and leave for 6-7 hours. Add beef bouillon and salt to taste. Add cornstarch (per directions on can). Add green beans and cook for an additional hour then it's ready to serve. It was very good! Thanks for making dinner!
Eric shared a small smackeral of beef stew with the Squirrel who is now quite content, snuggled in, and settled down for the night.

  2. So if you're writing in Portuguese your comment seems right on the nose. I don't speak the language, but thanks to the magic of Yahoo's Babelfish I was able to understand your note. Thanks for taking the time to comment and for your visit! Obrigado!
