Sweet and Sour Beef Stew

Cool days bring thoughts of warm comfort foods! This beef stew fits the bill. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice or noodles and you have a complete dinner. Great for a crock pot, too. I would still brown the stew meat in a skillet before adding it to the crock pot. That gives it a richer flavor.

Sweet and Sour Beef Stew
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound lean beef stew meat
1 cup chopped carrot
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup tomato sauce (16-oz. can)
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup water
4 teaspoons cornstarch
Egg noodles, cooked

Brown stew meat in vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven. Add remaining ingredients except for cornstarch and noodles. Simmer for 2 hours (or cook for 6 hours in a slow cooker). Add cornstarch and cook until thickened. Serve over hot cooked noodles.
