Do you use Wondra Flour to thicken your gravy in soups and stews or other recipes?

    I use flour, any brand, and add to the beef whilst it is frying. Afterwards adding liquid slowly whilst off the heat and stirring well prevents lumps forming

  • writerkath 4 years ago

    We pretty much use ordinary flour...

  • anonymous 4 years ago

    I use broth from the stew and cold water and mix it with flour. Then add it to the stew.

      Yes definitely it sounds lovely. I make a beef and vegetable stew with plum. I use my homemade slightly tart plum jam. I'm going to give your recipe a crack just for a different flavored stew. For a change.

      Would you credit it, I just found this lens and I only made homemade stew last night, was so yummy, maybe next time I shall try this, thanks for sharing. On another note, how long will stew last in the fridge before you need to throw it out?

      You have some great recipe lenses. Now if you could just loan out your husband to come teach my husband how to cook, I'd be forever in your debt. :)

      Very similar to my own beef stew recipe, but I always fry the onions before adding other ingredients. Beef stew is one of my favourite meals. And when I make it I always make enough to last for three days. The icing on the cake is the suet dumplings which I call upon my wife to make for me.

      Sounds like great food for a rainy day. Beef stew also reminds me of my childhood when beef stew always came on a Monday after Sunday lunch to make sure nothing got wasted.

      Sounds like a very warming winter meal, perfect for today's Melbourne weather - it's only going to get to 14C and it's raining! :-)
