My husband loved this version of beef stew, but he cant eat it anymore, cos we have a buddha statue at home.

Ingredients
Beef - 300g (cut into bite size chunks)
Potatoes - 1 (peeled and cut into bite size)
Carrots - 2 (peel and cut into bite size)
Salt and black pepper
Dried Italian seasoning - 1 teaspoon
Hot water
Beef soup stock - 1 to 2 cups
1 tbsp of soya sauce
2 tsp of pepper
2 clovers of garlic (Smashed)
Corn flour
1 large white onion (Cut into quarters)

* Marinate the beef with soya sauce, pepper and garlic for min. 1 hr.
* Coat beef with cornflour and fry in oil till the outer is cooked.
* Remove beef.
* Add the onions into the frying pan and cook till soft.
* Add the onions into the crockpot;
* Add carrots on top of the onions;
* Add potatoes on top of the carrots;
* Add the beef
* Add water till it covers the ingredients
* Add beef stock
* Add the italian seasonings
* Cover and cook on high for min. 4 hours or low for 8 hours.

The above caters for 2 person.

The beef stock can be purchase at Liberty Market, get those concentrated ones. I bought it under the brand "MasterFood", and I added only 2 small packages into the crockpot. 1 small package is 1 cup of beef stock. No need to dilute or add water.

usually the parts of the cow that is meant for stewing will be Topside, Beef Brisket, Beef Tendons. Had to be very tough meat so that it will not break into pieces after many hours of cooking.

About the Italian seasoning, I think she is talking about those McCormick pre packed herbs that comes in a small bottle. It usually has a mix of Dried Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, Oregano.

Liberty Market is a supermarket in Singapore that sells American food products/ingredients. But I heard its no longer around. but just a section at NTUC Supermarket at Junction 8 Shopping Centre.

Liberty Market used to be a supermarket at Plaza Singapura and it does not have the NTUC logo. Although it belongs to NTUC supermarket group. now its just a section within NTUC supermarkets.

what I meant was its not a supermarket that is labelled as Liberty Market. If you go to Junction 8, you will not find Liberty Market at the basement. Only NTUC. Wink

Yupz, Jurong Point has both a standalone Liberty Market and NTUC~ Still have American goods on sale at Liberty~ Not as big as the one that used to be at Plaza Singapura though. Wink

My hubby loves the stew. Realise my crockpot was too small so I boiled it for 2 hours.

Delicious.

Actually for folks who can't eat beef, can try substituting with mutton.

no need dipping sauce as the stew is very watery..thus the meat will be coated with the thick gravy.
