A Little Warmth for a Cold Day!

What can be more comforting on a cold day than a big bowl or plate of beef stew?

I like a nice helping over some rice for dinner. Here is my recipe for a quick beef stew.

1-1.5 lbs of stew beef
1 bag of frozen stew veggies
4 small red skinned potatoes
1 med onion chopped
2 tbls of minced garlic
1 package of stew seasoning mix
2 bay leaves
3 cups water
1/4 cup flour
1-2 tbls of veggie oil

Dredge the meat in the flour while heating the oil in a dutch oven or soup pot. Brown the meat in batches. Take the last batch out of the pot, and saute the onion and garlic until clear. Add the potatoes and seasoning packet and the meat pack to the pot. Add the water, the frozen veggies, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Let cook for 1 hr to 1.5 hrs. Serve over rice or by itself.
