Beef Stew

Beef stew cooked without using any cheat seasonings. It never tasted so good.


2 lbs. of stewing beef cut in bite sizes
1 cup of water
1 medium onions, quartered
5 medium potatoes, quartered
2 carrots, sliced in bite sizes
2 celery stalks, cut in 1 inch long
1/2 each of red and green pepper, cut in bite sizes
1 can of 225 ml tomato sauce
salt to taste

Dredge beef in flour and fry until brown. Throw into the slow cooker. Add water and cook for about 2 hours or until beef is tender.

In a separate pan, fry potatoes until cooked. Set aside. On the same pan, saute onions for about 1 minute. Add carrots and cook for another one minute. Add celery and potatoes. Add cooked beef and tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. About 2 minutes before serving dish, add the green and red pepper and cook for about 1 minute. Add salt to taste.
