Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cut up carrots, celery and potatoes and soak in a bowl of water.
  • Cut meat into 1 ½ - 2 inch pieces.
  • Place flour, cajun seasoning and beef into a gallon size Zip Loc bag.
  • Shake well to the coat beef evenly.
  • Into a 6 quart Dutch oven, on medium high heat (2 notches above med. on my stove), heat the vegetable oil.
  • When the oil is hot, brown the meat. (brown on all sides) Add a little more oil if the meat starts to stick or the flour starts to burn.
  • Into the Dutch oven (with the meat and oil), add the water and the beef broth then mix well.
  • Add the beef stew seasoning, salt and mix well.
  • Add potatoes, carrots, celery and onion next and mix well.
  • Bring to a boil then simmer (1 notch above lo on my stove) for 2 hours or until meat and vegetables are good and tender.
  • Stir (with a flat bottom wooden spoon) at least every 15-20 minutes to make sure the gravy doesn’t stick and burn on the bottom of the pot.
  • If gravy thickens while cooking, add some more water.
  • Enjoy!
