Wendell's Beef Stew

OMG people . . . I think I'm getting sick AGAIN.  My body is all achy and my throat is scratchy. I was just sick about 3 months ago.  Don't you develop an immunity kinda thing after you've been sick so that you're good for at least a year or so after that?  I hate being sick.

Anyway, you should see the cute beanies I just made!  I made a monkey-wearing-a-beanie beanie and a Hello Kitty beanie.  Soooooo cute.  But too dark to take pictures now.   I'll show you tomorrow.   In the meantime, here's Wendell's beef stew . . . very, very ono.

Season 2 lbs of stew meat and 1 lb of short ribs (with bone) with salt and pepper. Dust with flour and brown in some oil with one chopped onion.  

Add 4 cups of beef broth and 1 14 oz can of tomato sauce.  Simmer for 1 hour.

Add potatoes, carrots, celery and long beans.  Cook for another 20 minutes.  Thicken with flour/water.  Season with garlic salt.

Les, I no think was you. CQ and Mel both sick too. I think it was from Meren . . . hahaha.

Thanks Kat.

Sorry Betty, I must've accidentally deleted your comment. If you make the stew make sure you use the short ribs with bone. I think that's the secret. That's what my mom uses.

Erick, I think it's because it rained at Baby Makapu'u. I remember thinking, I hope I don't get sick.

That is such a classic stew. Mouthwatering.
When my daughter was born I felt like I was saying that all the time (wasn't I just sick?). It seemed like I was sick every other week. Blah.

But I get sick about every 3 months normally. I guess you have an amazing immune system!

Kathy, I still have to work on perfecting my beanie making skills. I'm so inconsistent still. Will let you know when I got good ones.

Mariko, every 3 months??!! Yikes. Other than being sick 3 months ago, I can't even remember when I was sick before then.
