I decided to make beef stew using the left over beef and juice from the French Dip we had earlier this week. The juice is more a nice rich broth then a juice and works real well as the base of my stew.
An hour before I expected to be back home from the round trip taking Madeline home I started my stew. I lightly browned the beef in a little oil and 2 tbs of flour to make the rue I added the onions and made them translucent I carefully added my broth and cooked about 5 minutes then I added my chunked vegetables and brought it all to a boil uncovered. Once it came to a boil I lowered the heat to low, covered the pan and left it to cook.
When I returned the vegetables were done just like we like them and the house smelled delicious. All that was left to do was add the frozen peas to the stew, toss together a salad and brown up what was left of the French Dip roll .
As I said earlier this week. There is so much you can do with the left over French dip.The broth from the French dip is what makes this stew the best I have ever tasted.
