My favorite comfort food, beef stew.

1 1/2 chuck roast cut in small pieces
6 red potatoes, diced
8 oz frozen peas
1/4 large onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1 rib celery chopped
1 large carrot chopped
3 diced tomatoes, or 1 can of diced tomatoes
1/4 cup flour
Salt
Pepper
Steak seasoning
Worcestershire sauce
Steak sauce
beef bullion



Dice the carrot, onion, garlic and potatoes, and set aside. Add flour salt, pepper and pieces of meat to a plastic bag.  Seal it and shake well. Let it rest for 5 minutes, then empty the contents in to a colander.
Sift off the excess flour, and add the meat to a hot oiled deep skillet. Brown the meat on medium low. Take care not to burn the flour.
Meanwhile. to a small stock pot, add water bullion, and the all the veggies except the peas.
Bring to a simmer and add the meat. Let it continue to simmer until potatoes and carrots are tender.

adjust the seasoning with Worcestershire and steak sauce, and turn down to low. Continue cooking for 1 hour. Add the peas. cook for additonal

My favorite way to serve is with warm bread and a glass of cold cold milk. Enjoy
