Easy Beef Stew for Fall
- 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 pounds beef, cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup sliced diced celery
- 10 cups beef broth*
- 2 carrots, sliced into rounds
- 2 medium potatoes, cut into cubes
- 2 cups apple juice**
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. each of nutmeg and cloves
- 1 can corn
- 1/2 c. cornstarch
- salt and pepper
**I used leftover apple cider from Bible study the night before. If you use spiced cider, you can eliminate adding the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
In a small bowl or cup, combine cornstarch with 1 c. cold water until smooth. Add the mixture to the simmering broth, a little at a time, until stew is thickened. Taste and add salt and pepper.
Serves 8 to 10
I hope you all enjoy this recipe! Please come back and let me know if you tried it and how you liked it. I'd love to hear other variations. Did you add autumn vegetables like squash, zucchini or pumpkin? How did you like it with the apple cider/juice?
