Melanie’s Beef Stew

Thank goodness I had this saved on email so I didn’t have to call Melanie and ask her for this recipe (for the 5th time at least). I’m making this tomorrow for a break from turkey leftovers.

Brown some stew meat (about 1 lb) and throw it in a crockpot.

3 cups water
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp. worchestershire sauce
clove of garlic
1 medium onion, sliced
2 bay leaves
1 T. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp sugar
Simmer for at least 2 hours
Add carrots and red potatoes, cook until tender (usually a few more hours)
Blend 4 Tbsp flour in cold water until smooth.  Stir into stew to make gravy.
We also throw in some extra salt, maybe some seasoning salt, and I always throw in a little garlic.   Just use whatever you love.
