Where firefighters come to talk training

Purchase a good size top round of beef. Cube it into 1 inch squares. Brown the cubes on all sides. Use a good old cast iron dutch oven or other heavy pot. Add enough water to cover the beef. Simmer for about an hour, the longer the better. While it simmers add 2 squirts of Worchestershire sause and two large onions cut into large junks. Add two bay leafs (remove before making gravy), a tablespoon of lemon juice, a tablespoon of oregano, 1 tablespoon of chooped garlic, salt and pepper to taste. At the end of the hour add copped up carrots, celery and potatoes. Simmer till the veggies are tender. Next thicken the stew. I just take a quart jar with a good lid and add a cup of milk and 4 tbsps of flour. Shake till the flour is disolved. Slow down the simmer and add the milk/four mixture. Stir till it thickens up.
