Penny Said:What is a simple beef stew recipe, not using too many ingredients?
We Answered:YOu got stew as is. Stew is just a bunch of stuff you got on stock and shove in a pot. I would add chicken broth, garlic and pepper to the meat, onions, carrot, potato and celery. Beer or red wine can replace or in addition to the chicken broth. My favorite spice is thyme. The stew packet would be fine. I like my stew thick, so I add corn starch at the end.
edit. Boil it for several hours and when you add corn starch mix it with water first and slowly added to the stew so it wont make lumps. Stir it while you add the corn starch.
