Super Simple Stewed Beef

There's really nothing to this recipe. You need very few ingredients to make this stewed beef.  It's simple and delicious!

This is what it looks like when it's done. Not too much liquid left.

6 servings

2lbs stewing beef or veal, cubed
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 bay leaves

Heat oil in a nonstick pot over medium high heat. Fry the meat on all sides until browned. You may have to do this in 2 or 3 batches. Sprinkle turmeric, salt and pepper over the meat and stir. Add the bayleaves and cover the meat with water.

Reduce the heat to medium and put the lid on the pot. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Check on it regularly. If the water starts to run out add a little more. The end result shouldn't be liquidy.

Serve with rice or potatoes.
