Excellent and can be done in the crockpot!

Old Fashioned Beef Stew
(from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook - 1960)

Ingredients:

2 pounds beef cut in 1 1/2 inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil

4 cups boiling water
I tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove of garlic
1 medium onion sliced
1 or 2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon salt (I use less)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
dash of allspice or cloves

Method:

Brown beef cubes in the oil.
Add rest of ingredients.
Cover and simmer (don’t boil) for 2 hours stirring occasionally.
Remove bay leaves.

(I throw it all in the crockpot after browning and cook on low all day)

You can then add carrots, small onions, potato cubes or other
veggies and simmer 30 more minutes. Thicken the liquid with flour for gravy if you like.

To make it SBD legal, I use sweet potato cubes and green beans. You can thicken the gravy with egg yolk. Put the yolk in a dish and stir in some hot liquid a bit at a time before adding it to the stew or you'll have HB egg bits in the gravy!
