Pop’s Stew Beef

Sundays as a child were always spent going to church and then heading over to Mimi & Pop’s for Sunday lunch. These are some of my most favorite memories and I am feeling nostalgic and thought I would share some of my most fav recipes. The funny thing is my Pop always did the cooking because when Mimi would cook it was the running joke that she would add a can of pineapple, raisins or heaven forbid coconut! (I HATE coconut!!) Therefore to keep Sundays running smoothly Helen aka Mimi was most always told to stay out of the kitchen!! Here is one of my favs a true classic ~Stew Beef~ (I don’t think Pop ever used the crockpot but, I have found this to be the easiest way to prepare)
Stew Beef, cut in 1 in pieces
Season with salt & pepper
Sear in hot pan with vegetable oil to get a nice caramelizing. 5-7mins
Put meat in warm crockpot and add the following:
1 can beef broth
1/2 can water
1 pkt Lipton Onion soup mix
Worcestershire sauce
Let this cook on low 6-8hrs the longer the better.
Serve with rice or mashed potatoes which ever you prefer! ENJOY!
