Easy Hearty Beef Stew

This 1-2-3 recipe turned out so yummy I thought I’d share. I only got the finish pot-full pictured but it was gobbled up. Cold fall days mom would make a huge pot of stew. She give us kids a tin bowl full with a wooden spoon and we pretend to be cowboys around the campfire eating stew and telling stories.

This I made in my pressure cooker or a All day crock pot works just fine.

  • Stew beef cubed and fat trimmed( 2 lbs)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2-3 Tsp oil
  • 2 lg carrots
  • Two stalks celery

  • 1 Cup white mushrooms sliced
  • Tsp garlic chopped

  • Three cups water
  • Tbs season salt ( garlic parsley)
