Food Friday: Beef Stew

Beef Stew
2 pounds beef stew meet, cubed
1/2 - 1 C. flour (I usually add a little salt and pepper - in addition to what is listed below)
3 T. shortening
1 medium onion, chopped
4 carrots, sliced
1 C. fresh green beans (or 1 can if that is what is on hand)
1-2 clove garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
4 Cups water

In the photo above, I had also added 2 cubed sweet potatoes.  It was too sweet for my husband, but I really liked it.

Dredge meat in flour.  Melt shortening in a large skillet.  Add beef cubes to the skillet and saute until evenly browned.  Transfer to Crock-Pot Slow Cooker.  Add remaining ingredients. Stir. Cover and cook on LOW 10-12 hours or on HIGH 5-6 hours.  Remove and discard bay leaves.  Serve with bread.

Makes 8-10 servings.
