Beef Stew – draft

3 Sep

Well I had picked up two and a half pounds of stewing beef on the weekend and thought I’d better get on it and make some stew!
So I first browned the beef in a tablespoon in olive oil and placed it in a large pot.

Then added the rest of the ingredients.


Ahhhhhh, the true test of a good seal… 🙂 When you can pick it up by the seal 24 hours later!

Here’s my recipe (adapted from Bernardin’s Guide to Home Canning 2010 revision)
2 1/2 pounds of Stewing Beef
7 cups peeled, cubed potatoes
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
3 cups peeled, sliced carrots
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

It gave me 8 pint and 2-500mL jars with one 500mL jar not sealing so it was lunch for the next day.

Lots of canning love,
