Beef Stew

Here is a basic beef stew recipe that I've found and that brings back memories of childhood.

  • 2 lbs chuck roast, preferably with the bone
  • 2 medium sized carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 medium potato
  • 2 shallots
  • 6-8 springs of parsley
  • salt 
  • pepper
  • 32 oz beef broth
  • water
  • Place the chuck roast (beef) into the bottom of the pot.
  • Rough chop all of the vegetables so that they are in bite size pieces.
  • As the vegetables get chopped up, place them in the pot on top of the beef.
  • Add salt and pepper then cover everything with the beef broth and water.
  • Simmer on medium heat for 3 1/2 to 4 hours stirring occasionally.
