Recipe Title
Beef Stew
Recipe Theme
-- Select a Coop --
3 1/2 pounds beef
2 tablespoons melted fat, or cooking oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 turnip, diced
3 carrots, diced
5 potatoes
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup flour
Dumplings (see below)
Have the butcher cut the beef into small pieces for stewing. Dredge with flour and seasoning, and brown with chopped onion. Cover the meat and onions with water and allow to simmer two to three hours or until meat is tender. Half an hour before serving, add the other vegetables; and 15 minutes before serving, add dumplings. When done, thicken the gravy with flour and serve.
Beat one egg, add one teaspoon salt and one-half cup of milk. Stir into one and one-half cups sifted flour to form a smooth batter. Drop by spoonfuls into boiling salted water and cook for 15 minutes.
