Beef Stew

A great hearty warm meal for a cold January day.

Beef Stew

Brown well 2 lbs. of stew meat in hot bacon grease (you can just use oil but the bacon grease gives the meat a lot of flavor)
2 quarts water
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
Pepper to taste
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp. paprika
dash of allspice
1 tsp. sugar

Simmer together until tender, stirring occasionally.

4-5 cups of carrots
1 medium onion, chopped

Cook until the carrots are just about done, then add 8 cups of potatoes (approximately 4 lbs). Cook until tender. Thicken liquid with approximately 5-6 Tbsp cornstarch mixed with cold water.
