Not Your Beast Stew

For those who requested Memaw's Family Tree, give me a couple of days to send that to you.

Yesterday I picked up Memaw's version of Papaw's Memories, and I just need to get the line spacing and such cleaned up on that. Sometimes scanning gives you more work than you want. But you will be seeing that here soon.

It is Beef Stew weather today. Wonder if niece E would call this beast stew? Now for Just Plain Cooking:

Beef Stew ( Memaw's)

2 pounds cubed stew meat
1 large onion ( chopped)
1 toe garlic
3 carrots ( cut in bite size pieces)
3 potatoes (quartered)
2 stalks celery (sliced)
1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup snipped parsley
3 cups beef broth or water

In a large bag combine flour, salt, and pepper. Add meat. Shake to coat meat.

In a large Dutch oven, brown meat in 2 tablespoons oil. Brown on all sides. Add garlic and onions and broth or water. Cook slowly until meat is beginning to get tender.

Add the remaining vegetables and cook until vegetables are done. Thicken juices.
Good served with hot cornbread.

(Doesn't sound too beastly to me.)
