Tips

As a single serving, I have made this without flour, use just enough broth to cook desired vegetables in microwave until just tender then added beef, cook another 3-5 minutes until hot. Ready to serve, with a salad.


Directions

Step 1 - cube 1 lb of beef round steak or chuck = remove excess fat. Place in roasting pan with 1 small onion diced, garlic cloves and other spices, 1 tbsp worstshire sauce - cover and slow roast until tender. Cool and place into 'serving size (4 oz)' zip-lock bags and freeze.

Step 2 - Preparation for serving. Remove 4 servings of precooked beef from freezer, In deep pot/electric fry pan saute in 1 Tbsp oil, diced small onion, garlic clove, till soft, mix 2 Cup beef broth with 2 Tbsp flour add to pan, with bayleaf and season pepper.
Peal and cube vegetables - potatoes, carrots, turnip, parsnip after 10 minutes add precooked beef , and 1 Cup frozen peas, let simmer for another 10-15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender...add more broth to maintain a sauce.
