Directions:
Heat some oil in a skillet. Check the beef cubes and see if they are small enough, cut any that need it (usually 1 inch cubes). Roll beef cubes in flour. When oil is popping hot, add beef cubes so they can brown on all sides. Remove cubes from skillet and place in roasting pan. Cut carrots tops and bottom tips off. Slice as needed. Wash potatoes, or if you can, use small red potatoes. If using a larger potatoes, such as Idaho, then cut into 1/4s and just leave skin on. Cut onions into quarters. Clean and chop celery into fork size pieces. Place carrots, onions, celery, and potatoes around the beef cubes. Sprinkle on the vegs, and beef, the salt, pepper and some garlic cloves or garlic powder. Add 1/2 c. water or chicken broth or beef broth. Place roasting pan lid on. Bake at 400 for 1 hr. to 1 1/2 hr. Remove lid and see if the items are brown enough, for your liking. They should be fork tender. Let cook uncovered for 10 mins., if needed for browning. Use the drippings in the pan to make gravy. We also used Worchestershire sauce over the beef, if we were having company!
