Well it's a cool rainy blah day. We needed comfort food. Who doesn't love beef stew. This can also be made in the crockpot for an easy workday meal. You won't even miss the traditional potatoes.

2 tablespoons soy flour
2-3 pound beef roast-cut into 3/4 inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups beef stock
1 cup water
1 medium onion -chopped
1 beef bouillon cube
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp dried sweet basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 bay leaves
1 small bag of frozen green beans
1/2 cup bagged shredded carrots (optional)
1 tablespoon thicken not thin
salt and pepper to taste

1) place flour in a ziplock baggie and add the meat cubes. Shake until coated and then put in a dutch oven with the oil. Brown all the meat in batches and drain fat. Then add the meat back into the pot. Stir in the broth, water, bouillon cube, onion, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings and about 1/4 tsp black pepper and salt. Cover and bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for about 1/2 hour or until meat is nearly cooked. Stir in carrots and green beans. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer and cook (at this point add the thicken not thin),covered for about 30 min or until veggies are tender. Discard those bay leaves and enjoy. Serves 6 (can be frozen for extra meals)
