I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Simple Beef Stew

Just a simple beef and veg stew, no spuds added, but you could definitely serve this over some nice and buttery mashed potatoes.

1 1/2 lbs stewing beef, cut in cubes
2 tbsps vegetable oil
28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup beef broth or onion soup mix and water
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp smoked paprika
2 tsps worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dry thyme
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups diced carrots
1 1/2 cups diced parsnip
1 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsps cold water

Brown beef in hot oil in batches, 1-2 minutes per side, then add garlic. Stir together before adding the diced tomatoes and broth to deglaze the pan.

Add paprika, thyme, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, carrots and parsnip and pour everything into a slow cooker.

Cover and cook on low  7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

I left the juices as is, but if you want to thicken it mix the cornstarch and cold water together then stir into the stew. Cook on high for 30 minutes to an hour until thickened.

Great with these 20 minute baking powder biscuits!
Serves 6
