    1 tsp. olive oil
    1 lb. beef, cut into bite-size dice
    1 large onion, diced
    1 celery rib, sliced
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    2 Tbsp. flour
    2 tsp. tomato paste
    1 cup fresh green beans, cut into about 1-inch pieces
    4 cups chopped carrots
    5 medium potatoes, scrubbed or peeled and diced
    3 cups beef broth
    rosemary, to taste


Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook, stirring, until well-browned. Remove beef from pan with a slotted spoon.
Add onions and celery to pot and cook, stirring, until onions are translucent.
Stir in flour and tomato paste.
Add 2 cups water to the pot and stir until it begins to thicken.
Return beef to the pot; add green beans, carrots, potatoes and beef broth (the broth should just cover all the meat and veggies. If not enough, add a little more and calculate nutrition info accordingly).
Add rosemary, to taste. **Bring to boiling, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the veggies are tender.

**Alternately, you could bring to boiling and then cover it and put it into a 325-degree oven. Let cook 2-3 hours. This will probably make the meat more tender, and give you a few hours to give yourself a pedicure while dinner cooks. ;-)
