Old-Time Beef Stew

Another freezer meal I tried and was good.

2 lbs beef cubes (stew meat)
1 T. oil
4 cups boiling water
1 T. lemon juice
1 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, sliced
1 T. salt
2 bay leaves
1/2 t. peper
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. paprika
dash of allspice

Serving day:
1 lbs carrots, chopped
3/4 potatoes, chopped
1-2 cups frozen peas

yields 6-8 servings

Cooking day instructions:
Brown meat in oil. Add rest of ingredients and cook 1-2 hours, until meat is tender. Freeze, using freeze bag method.

Serving day instructions:
Thaw completely and place stew in stockpot (I put in crock pot). Add vegetables and simmer 2-3 hours, until vegetables are tender. If desired, some of the liquid may be thickened with flour and poured over the meat and vegetables (I did this and it was yummy!)
