I Like Beef Stew and I Cannot Lie!


OH MY GOD, BECKY!
LOOK AT HER BEEF! IT'S SO BIG!!!!
I like Beef Stew and I can not lie.
You other foodies can't deny
That when a bowl is filled, not an itty bitty goes to waste.
And a big pot in your face
You get ...
HUNGRY!


Granny's Ingredients
1 soup bone
2lbs (approximately) beef
1 small can tomato paste
1- 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
1 - 8oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 onion, diced
1 rib celery, diced
1 large potato, diced
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
salt & pepper to taste

Fill a large stock pot with beef and water and salt.
Of course pre-cut beef is available, however Granny opted to slice up her own beef.
Bring the beef & soup bone to a boil until the beef is tender.  Add a bay leaf to the broth and allow to simmer while dicing and chopping veggies.
Add veggies and cans of assorted tomato products*. Continue to simmer until veggies are tender.
Serve hot with skillet cornbread.
* Granny's Beef Stew is best when she uses tomatoes she cans herself rather than those she purchased.  But since she didn't can any this year we had to settle (picture me pouting).
