Directions

  1. In a large pot cook all the meat at once in hot oil over medium-high heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until brown, stirring occasionally. Drain off excess fat. Add the 4 cups water, sliced onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, sugar, salt, paprika, pepper, bay leaf, and allspice. Bring just to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in carrots, halved onions, and potatoes. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 30 minutes more or until meat and vegetables are tender. Discard bay leaf.
  3. In a screw-top jar shake together the 1/2 cup cold water and flour until combined. Stir into stew. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook 1 minute more. Season stew to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle each serving with snipped parsley, if desired. Makes 6 servings.

I also add 8 oz. of tomato juice to mine. I add the 1/8 tsp. allspice plus the 1/8 tsp.ground cloves the original recipe called for. Then I add some Kitchen Bouquet. NEXT about 2 Tablespoons of beef Better Than Bullion (BTB). Make sure there is enough liquid per teaspoon of the BTB. 1 Cup per teaspoon. YUMMY! !!!

This is the best beef stew I've ever made. Numbers of people have asked for the recipe; even men request it for their wives! The allspice is a surprise ingredient, and I usually add double (1/4 tsp) to the crockpot. I also used a can (8 oz) of tomato sauce. You should never follow a printed recipe's amounts of seasonings. Always taste test and season according to your preference. That way, the recipe is NEVER bland.
