Brown Stew

Brown stew is very similar to beef stew. But most beef stew does not have the extra step of browning the meat by frying then simmer until tender. This extra process is known as braising.  Although this dish looks similar to beef stew or our local version, the beef caldereta, the taste is very different because it does not have tomato sauce.


1 kilo beef round, cut into cubes
2 Tbsp. flour
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 head garlic, crushed
2 pcs onion, sliced
3 cups beef broth
2 tsp. lemon juice

2 pcs bay leaves
2 pcs medium size potatoes, quartered
1 pc carrot cubed
