  • 2 pounds pastured stewing beef
  • 2 cups of beef or chicken stock (or 1 cup stock and 1 cup wine or beer)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3-5 small potatoes, cubed 
  • 1 to 3 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon each dried rosemary, basil, and oregano
  • 1/8 cup arrowroot powder (if you want to thicken your stew)

Stew Cooking Directions

  • Place meat into crockpot.
  • Add liquids then all other ingredients except for arrowroot powder on top.
  • Cover and cook on low for eight hours.

Directions to Thicken

  • Just before you’re ready to eat, use a ladle to spoon out most of the liquid into a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Stir a small amount of the liquid into a small bowl and sprinkle in the arrowroot flour, whisking as you add it. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Slowly pour the arrowroot mixture into the boiling liquid in the pot and remove from heat as you whisk continuously.
  • Do not reheat as this will break the bonds of the thickener.
  • If it’s not thick enough, use water and some more arrowroot powder in your small bowl, whisk to mix, then slowly add into the gravy.
