Beef Stew

There is nothing better than a warm bowl of stew on a cold day. My Grandmother was known for her simplistic cooking that tasted so good.  This recipe is from the collection of Ethel Eynard 2004.

Homestyle beef stew is the perfect dish for when it is cold outside.


  • 1 pound top boneless round steak
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried whole thyme
  • 2 cups cubed potatoes
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed


Trim fat from steak, cut into 1 inch cubes. Combine flour and pepper; dredge meat in flour mixture, reserving the excess.

Cook meat, 3/4 chopped onion and reserved flour mixture in oil in a Dutch oven over low heat until meat is lightly browned. Add water and next five ingredients. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 1/2 hours. Stir in potato, 1 cup carrot and 1 cup onion; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add peas and cook an additional 10 minutes.

      This lady could really cook. I miss her too. I miss all of her wonderful desserts, her stewed potatoes, and coffee cake. She was a lovely woman.
