I knew if I didn't write this down, I'd never remember how I did it!
In your stew pot, combine:
A bit o' oil
One large onion, cut in eighths
Four garlic cloves, smashed
Cook for 10 minutes, or until everything is softened up and smells yummy.
6 cups water
4 teaspoons beef base
1 lb beef stew meat
Simmer for 30 minutes
4 carrots, peeled, 1" pieces
4 small white potatoes, 1" chunks
2 medium sized sweet potatoes, peeled, 1" chunks
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Simmer until tender (30-60 minutes). Serve with Aunt LoLo's Bread with butter and honey, and a green salad.
Dessert: Easy Apple Cake
