Sandra's Wisconsin Beef Stew

Comment on this recipe

This is a new twist on stew recipes. It has a little sweet/sour taste. The recipe doesn't need potatoes with all the other veggies.

Ingredients

1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds beef stew meat
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup ketchup
1-1/4 cups water
2 cups sliced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
1 cup frozen peas, unthawed
Hot cooked noodles (16 ounce package)

Instructions

Combine 1/4 cup flour and pepper in large plastic bag. Add stew meat, a few pieces at a time and shake to coat. Heat oil in large glass or metal soup kettle. Add stew meat and brown for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Add onion, ketchup and 1 cup water to meat. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 hour and 30 minutes. Add carrots, celery, brown sugar and vinegar. Cover and simmer 35 minutes. Add peas and continue cooking 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Blend 2 tablespoons flour with remaining 1/4 cup water. Add to stew and cook, stirring frequently, until bubbly and thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve over hot noodles. Makes about 8 servings.
