1-2 Lbs Stew beef
Half of a large onion
1 Small bag of baby carrots
2 Cloves of garlic
1 Potato per person
1 Bay leaf although I used shredded and just shook it in till it felt like enough
either enough beef stock to cover all the food or beef bouillon mixed with hot water
I basically just tossed in the meat still frozen, cut up all the veggies then added them, I then did the beef stock, then the seasonings, let it cook on high for about 3 hrs then turned it down to low for about 2-3 hrs. Half way through I added a little bit more of each of the seasonings. I dont have measurements because I rarely go by them unless im baking. I just add it till it feels right. So you want to start out with a little and you can always add more. Just dont start out with a lot because its hard to fix that. You can always add more though. as Alton Brown would say " Now thats Gooooood Eats!"
