Hearty, Allergy Friendly Beef Stew Hearty, Allergy Friendly Beef Stew

  • Ingredients: 1 lb. beef of your choice, I used Chuck Steak
    4 stalks of celery
    10-15 bite sized carrots
    1 small onion
    5-7 small potatoes
    1 pkg. Bloomfield Farms Seasoned Flour
    Cooking Oil
    1-2 cups of water
    1/8 c. cornstarch
    2 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. pepper
    2 tsp. garlic powder

  • Instructions:
    1. Chop up your onion, celery & potatoes into the desired sizes. Place in crock-pot.
    2. Cut up the beef steak into bite sized chunks.
    3. Place the bite sized chunks into the Bloomfield Farms Seasoned Flour (I generally place my flour mixture into a Ziploc bag) & coat well.
    4. In a cast iron skillet, heat up enough cooking oil to fry the bite sized beef chunks. It may require two fryings if your skillet isn’t big enough to hold all of the beef at once. Fry the beef until the outside is lightly brown. Place in your crock-pot.
    5. After removing the beef, while the cooking oil is still hot, add in 1 Tbsp. Bloomfield Farms Seasoned Flour, using a whisk. Let the oil cool. Once cooled, the flour mixture will be settled at the bottom of the skillet; pour off all but 1-2 Tbsp of oil. Add medium heat to this mixture. Mix together the cornstarch and 1/2 c. warm water in a separate cup. When you see bubbles in the mixture at the bottom of the pan, add in the cornstarch mixture and stir. If the gravy mixture is too thick, add in more water until you reach the desired consistency. Add in any additional seasonings that you desire (i.e. salt, pepper, garlic pepper). Pour gravy into crock-pot.
    6. Cook beef stew on high for 4-6 hours in your crock-pot, or on low for 10-12 hours. You may want to add additional salt or pepper to the stew, depending upon your preferences.
