Basic Stew Mixture

5 ts Olive oil
5 lb Round roast, trimmed, cut in 1 1/2" cubes
4 c Water
2 c Onion, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 ts Salt


Spray Dutch oven with cooking spray. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil. Brown a portion of the meat on all sides in the hot oil. Remove browned meat from Dutch oven; set aside. Repeat browning till all meat is cooked, adding the remaining olive oil a teaspoon at a time, as needed. Return all of the meat to the Dutch oven. Add water, chopped onion, minced garlic, and salt. Bring to boiling. Simmer, covered, till meat is tender, about 1 1/2-2 hours. Cover and refrigerate. When cold, skim fat from surface. Pour stew mixture into three 1-quart freezer containers. Seal, label, and freeze. Makes 3 quarts.
