Sweet and Sour Beef Stew


Sweet and Sour Beef Stew

One of my long time favorite recipes, its been with me most of my adult life.  Made this when I first got married, and a good number of times through out the years. Making it right now, as I write this, in fact.  Haven’t had it in a number of years since we’ve been on a healthy eating program that focuses primarily on chicken, so this will be a treat.

1/8 c. olive oil

1/8 c. all-purpose flour

1/8 tsp. salt

dash pepper

1 lbs. beef stew meat, cubed

1/2 c. water

1/4 c. ketchup

1/8 c. brown sugar

1/8 c. vinegar

1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 c. chopped onion

3 large carrots, cut into 3/4″ pieces (1 1/2 cups)

Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat.  Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a plastic food storage bag.  Add beef;  shake to coat.  Brown beef in skillet.  In a bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except carrots.  Stir into browned meat.  Cover and cook over low heat for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add carrots;  cook 45 minutes more or til carrots and meat are tender.  Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.  Serves 4 – 6.
