Easy Breezy Beef Stew


1 lb. stewing beef
½ C. flour
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
3 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 ½ C. water
2 onions, sliced and separated
3 potatoes, cubed
3 carrots, sliced
3 stalks celery, sliced


Cut meat into bite-sized pieces. In paper sack, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Put pieces of meat in sack, a handful at a time, and shake to coat. Reserve flour. Brown meat in oil on all sides. Add water, cover, and cook over low heat until tender, about 2 hours. Add vegetables to pan and continue cooking until vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. If needed, thicken with reserved flour. Serve with your favorite side salad.
