Recipe: Nanny's Beef Stew

This is another of those old family favorites that would just not be my style if it weren't an old family favorite. I usually prefer fresh vegetables, and sauteed garlic. But, this just wouldn't be the same with those things. And really, who couldn't use a quick, delicious meal that just warms you through in the winter?

1 lb stew meat, cubed
2 cans diced potatoes
1 can sliced carrots
2 cans cut green beans
1 can vegetable soup in beef broth
1 medium onion, sliced, chopped, whatever
salt & pepper
vegetable oil

Heat pot with vegetable oil, around 1 tablespoon
Add onions and sautee until translucent
Add stew meat, salt & pepper.

When meat is mostly brown add vegetables and soup.
Add enough water to cover and simmer until meat is tender.
Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed.

Combine cornstarch with water adding small amounts of water until cornstarch has consistency of cream.
Bring stew to a boil and stirring quickly add cornstarch mixture.
Turn heat down and let simmer for 1-2 minutes to continue thickening.

Serve and enjoy!
