French Stew with Beef
French beef stew recipes in homemade style.
Grease the bottom of an iron pot, and place in it three or four pounds of beef; be very careful that it does not burn, and turn it until it is lovely and browned. Set a muffin ring under the beef to prevent its sticking. Add a few sliced carrots, one or two sliced onions, and a cup of hot water; keep covered and stew slowly until the vegetables are cooked. Add in some pepper and salt. If you wish more gravy, add hot water, and thicken with flour. Serve French beef stew on a dish with the vegetables.
