Step by Step Method

Step 1

Brown the stew meat in the oil in two batches and remove, leaving the oil in the stew pot or dutch oven.

Step 2

Soften the onions for 5 minutes and add the other vegetables except for the potatoes. Cook in the oil for another 5 to 10 minutes and remove the vegetables from the pot.

Step 3

Add the beef and the liquids; bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Add back the vegetables, the potatoes and the remainder of the ingredients.

Step 5

Simmer for 15 more minutes or until beef and potatoes are tender.

Step 6

Add water to the corn starch to make a slurry and stir into the stew.

Step 7

Simmer until thickened and beef is tender.

Step 8

Note: A substitute for Zatarain's gumbo base is browned flour. I keep a bag of this in my freezer for gravies and gumbo's. Add one up of all purpose flour to a heavy skillet and heat over medium-high heat whisking continuously until a tan color is obtained (15 minutes or so). When wetted, this should be a dark brown or at least darker than peanut butter in color. This has a parched taste just like a roux made with flour and oil. It doesn't have a lot of thickening power.
