Grandma’s Beef Stew
This is a hearty, wholesome stew, packed with vegetables and flavor, just like Grandma's. This dish freezes well, so leftovers can be used weeks later.
2 lb. beef round, cubed
4 c. water
1 c. white onion, chopped
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 large green peppers, chopped
4 carrots, sliced
4 celery stalks, sliced
4 T. fresh basil, minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 T. fresh parsley, minced
4 c. stewed tomatoes
2 T. lemon juice
Brown beef in skillet over medium heat. Drain off all but about 1 tablespoon of fat. Add onions, peppers, carrots, celery and garlic. Sauté for a few minutes.
Add tomatoes and 2 cups water. Stir in oregano. Simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until beef is tender.
Stir in basil, parsley and lemon juice before serving.
Yields: 8 servings
Preparation Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes
