Beef Stew

I love homemade stew. 
I love having it simmer all day in your crock pot. 
 I love how the smell fills your house! 
I love how the longer it cooks, the better it tastes.

Do you get that I love it?
Here is my Mom's beef stew recipe - which I happily make!

Beef Stew
2 cups of diced roast beef (I use leftover from a pot roast)
5-6 potatoes peeled and cubed
2 carrots peeled and diced
1/4 cup diced onion
1 can of petite diced tomatoes
2 beef bouillon cubes
2 1/2 cups of water
1/2 tsp. of celery salt
1/2 tsp. of minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
one brown gravy mix packet
2 T flour
1/2 cup of water (maybe more?)

Turn your crock pot on high and put in bouillon cubes and water.  Dice up EVERYTHING!

Open a can of petite diced tomatoes and pour it in - juice and all!

Add all the seasonings.  Stir.  Be sure all the vegetables are covered with water - add more if needed.  And then let it simmer on high for 6-8 hours.  The longer - the better! 

 A half hour before serving, combine 2 T flour, 1/2 cup water, and one gravy mix.  Stir together with a whisk and mix into crock pot.  After a half hour you have a hearty, thick, beef stew!
