the worlds best gluten free stew

Before I share my favorite stew recipe, I just wanted to apologize I know I said I would start posting twice a week and I didn’t. Sorry I’ve had a lot going on but rest assured I’ll get a routine with my blog and  my NEW JOB! That’s right NEW JOB but anyway back to the stew! When I had to go gluten free there were so many things = I never would have thought about gluten in and stew  is one of them. Especially if you like a think and hardy stew like I do a lot of people use four to thicken up all their their soups. I also recently moved in with my boyfriend and  let me tell you finding recipes that are only for two people that aren’t  freezer food is a bitch! So here is the stew for 2 recipe!

Stew for two! 

Ingredients

  • 3 med carrots
  • 4 med or small potatoes
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 med onion
  • corn starch
    • to thicken up the stew
  • 1 bay leaf
  • parsley
  • 1 lb. of stew meat
  • 4 cups of beef broth
  • 1 cup of cold water
  • salt and pepper
  1.  Chop; carrots, potatoes, onion, & celery into bite sized pieces. Crush the 2 cloves of garlic into small pieces then set aside.
  2. Sear stew meat in skillet then add it as well as the; broth, carrots, celery, potatoes, garlic and all seasoning to your pot.
  3. Obviously, you want to let it “stew” ( see what I did there?) as long as possible, especially if you like to cook in your crock pot. But if you are cooking with a stove top pot at least let it simmer for an hour or so, stirring occasionally.’
  4. Your stew should thicken up as it simmers but if by the end its not as think as you would like then you add a tablespoon of corn starch and here is how ya do it
    1.  you measure out a tablespoon of corn starch and put in in a glass the you take the cold water, not a lot, just enough to dilute the corn starch and mix it up and pour in into the stew.
    2. make sure to wait 5 to 8 mins before adding another tablespoon of corn starch, you don’t want it to be to thick.
