Mom’s Beef Stew
This has been a favorite meal on our family camping trips for as long as I can remember.
Making this stew is a "labor of love". You get to labor in the kitchen making it ... then everyone loves getting to eat it.
Step 1: Assemble your Ingredients
6 lbs beef stew, cut in 2” pieces
4 Tbsp Olive oil (you may need more)
3 quarts broth or water*
chunked potatoes (12-14 med / lg potatoes)
chunked carrots (1 – 1 ½ lbs carrots)
2 packages baby bella mushrooms (seeing as these are sold under so many different names the scientific name is "Agaricus bisporus" )
2 - 4 onions, sliced to your preference
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
6 – 8 bay leaves
2 Tbsp sugar
2 cups red wine
* If you don't have the time or desire to make a broth to use in the stew you can use water.
