Cubed Beef and Gravy

Hi there blog friends!  Just finished a yummy lunch and wanted to share some with you.  And the easiest way to do that is by giving you the recipe!


Classic Cubed Beef and Gravy

2 lb. cubed beef
all purpose flour
vegetable or canola oil
2 cups water
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 – 3 onions, sliced
1 chopped bell pepper
8-ounce can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Dredge beef in flour.  Heat oil in skillet (enough to cover bottom).  Brown beef in oil over medium high heat.  Stir in water, tomato sauce, and remaining ingredients to beef in skillet, adding a generous amount of salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil and then turn heat down to a barely simmer.  Cover and cook two hours, stirring occasionally.  Taste and re-season if necessary.  If gravy gets too thick, add a little extra water before cooking is complete.

This is a hearty, satisfying dish which pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes. 

As you can see, my little somebody else wanted some, too!  But poor baby had to settle for a dog biscuit since garlic and onions aren’t healthy for our K9 friends. (For more on food safety for dogs, click here.)

Blessings, dear friends!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Sounds wonderful, Mrs. Smith! It is SO COLD up here -- well below zero with the wind chill factored in. This would have been a perfect supper -- but I made clam chowder, and that was very warming also.

Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Oh YUM, that looks so good! So nice to see your post! Your furry baby is so adorable, and thanks for the reminder about the garlic and onions! My daughter usually reminds me of those things, and she's at the dorm. Have a wonderful rest of your day!
