Julie's SO Easy Beef Stew

6 slices leftover roast, cubed

Roast gravy (app. 2-3 cups)(make gravy by cooking your roast with 1 can cream of mushroom soup; 1 packet onion soup mix and water to cover roast; cook in crockpot all day on low)

minced garlic (1 Tbsp)

4 baked potatoes, cubed

olive oil

1 small bag of frozen peas & carrots

1 tsp. tarragon leaves

1 bay leaf

3-4 shakes of Worchestire Sauce (season as you like; this is a key ingredient)

Lawry's seasoned salt (to season as you like)(about 2 shakes for us)

Red pepper (season as you like) (about 2 shakes for us)

In dutch oven over med. heat saute garlic, onion and potatoes in olive oil for just a few minutes. Add cubed roast and gravy, worchestire sauce, bag of peas and carrots, tarragon, bay leaf, seasoned salt and red pepper. Add water to make stew thickness you desire. Bring to a boil and then turn to low. Cook until peas and carrots are done. You can simmer on low until ready to eat. I usually start this around 5 and we eat at about 6:30. It's really good and everyone has seconds! Serve with hot buttered cornbread or cornmuffins, yum!yum!

Hope you enjoy it! Love, Julie
