Ingredients:  
1/3c flour
1tsp paprika
1/2tsp salt
1/4tsp pepper
2lbs stew meat
3T olive oil
1T worcestershire sauce
4-1/2c beef broth (I usually end up using more)
1 bay leaf
2 medium onions, chopped
4 carrots, trimmed and chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
4c 1" cubes of peeled Idaho baking potatoes
1/4 toasted flour (see below)
1/2-3/4 envelope brown gravy mix
2tsp lemon juice
1tsp dried thyme
1/2tsp salt
1/4tsp pepper

Directions:
Directions:
In a plastic food storage bag, combine the flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Add half the meat and shake to coat. Remove the meat, shaking off the extra coating, then repeat with the other half of the meat.
In a large Dutch oven, heat half the oil. Add half of the meat and brown on all sides. Add half the Worcestershire sauce and remove the meat to a plate. Repeat with the remaining meat, oil and Worcestershire sauce. Return all the meat to the pot and add enough beef broth to the pot to cover the meat. Add the bay leaf. Simmer, covered for about an hour, then add the carrot, onion, celery, and potatoe to the pot.
In a small bowl, stir together the remaining beef broth, toasted flour, the brown gravy mix and the lemon juice. Stir the mixture into the pot along with the thyme, salt, and pepper, There should be enough liquid to cover the vegetables, if not add more broth as needed.
Simmer covered over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the beef and vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Toasted Flour:In a dry skillet, spread flour to a depth of 1/4 inch/ Place the skillet over low to medium heat and cook the flour, stirring and watching closely, until it turns a light brown color. It will take 12-15 minutes. Store in a cool, dry place in a tightly covered container.
