I felt creative …or at least like trying something new a couple weeks ago… and came up with this delicious, hearty, flavorful stew!
1 pound beef stew meat
1 pound lamb stew meat
1 pound pork stew meat
1 medium onion, chopped
3 carrots, peeled & chopped
6 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
Approximately 1/4-1/3 cup FRESH thyme. (I grew alot last year and froze it … which worked perfectly in this recipe!)
Put about 3/4 cup flour, sprinkle of salt, sprinkle of pepper in a bowl. Toss the meat in it till coated. (I did about 1 pound at a time.) Brown meat in oil (I like olive oil). Then simply put the browned meat & the rest of the ingredients in a large crockpot. Add water till it comes up to about the halfway mark of the stew ingredients. Cover.
Cook on low @ 8-9 hours or high for @ 5 hours. DELICIOUS!
