  • Braise beef in oil until just brown on all sides (turning only once if possible).
  • Add Tabasco, Worcestershire, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add onions and saute until onions become clear.
  • Transfer to a *large pot and add beef broth, potatoes and carrots.
  • Bring to a boil, then simmer for about an hour (or until potatoes are cooked through) if you want the beef to be really tender, simmer for even longer.
  • About 20 minutes before serving, add corn, peas and tomato sauce and simmer until ready to serve. If you like your stew nice and thick, add a about 1 Tbsp. of cornstarch to some beef broth, stir until smooth, then stir into the stew.
  • Add beef broth to thin out and cornstarch to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
  • *You can also throw everything (except potatoes, corn & peas) in a crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours -- add potatoes, corn & peas the last 2-3 hours so they don't get too mushy.
