  • 1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 cup chopped carrot
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1 8 ounce can tomato sauce (1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Hot cooked noodles



Step 1

Brown meat in hot oil. Add next 6 ingredients, 1/2 cup water, and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover and cook over low heat till meat is tender, about two hours. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water; add to beef mixture. Cook and store till thickened and bubbly. Serve over noodles. Garnish with carrot curls and parsley, if desired. Makes 4 servings

This is a family favorite. Taste the sauce and if desired, add additional brown sugar to taste.
I cook the meat ahead of time in the crock pot until tender and freeze until I am read to use it.
