One That Doesn't Involve Eggs

I'm not going to tell Olivia that my blog about breakfast burritos got more attention than some of the posts about her ---- that might hurt her itty bitty feelings.

But, since it was SO popular,  I figured you all were starving for a new recipe to add to your kitchen collection.  This one is a FAM favorite and is a really simple meal to make.  I personally love making it because I can do it quickly while Olivia is napping and I don't have to spend hours in the kitchen.  And, did I mention that it usually makes enough for yummy leftovers the next day?

Beef Stew
2 boxes of beef broth
1-2 pounds of stew meat (we like it heavy on the meat)
potatoes
carrots
celery
medium onion
salt & pepper
**You can substitute different vegetables - parsnips, sweet potatoes

Combine 2 cups of beef broth, stew meat and onion (cut up) in a large stock pot and bring to a boil.  (Salt and pepper to taste).  Keep the meat boiling over medium-high heat for at least an hour, covered.


Add cubed potatoes, carrots and chopped celery to the meat.


Add water if needed to ensure that the vegetables are covered.  Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for at least an hour.  We always think the longer it cooks, the better it is.  Just make sure you don't run out of juice!!


Serve with a french baguette (mmm, from Schwan's) and you are golden!


*Thanks Uncle Hank for this delicious recipe!

MMMMMMMM! Day-um, that looks GOOD! And since I'm back on South Beach (for awhile anyway) I could still make that and just omit the potatoes....THANKS

Trust me I have had Hank's Beef Stew on more than one occasion and it is good. I put a roast w/potatoes and carrots in the crock pot this morning. Someone told me I could put it in frozen which I did so we will see how it turns out. We may be eating at 10pm.
