Steps:

  1. Using a large soup pot, heat olive oil until very hot. Cut up beef into bite size pieces. Salt and pepper beef. Drop into the oil and let it get very brown and sizzling. You will want a nice glazed pan for a dark gravy.
  2. Mix onion soup, Gravy Master, and Wondra in 3 cups of hot water in a saucepan. Whisk them until the sauce is smooth. Quickly add to your soup pot.
  3. Add all seasonings. After simmering for at least an hour, do a test taste, then adjust your seasonings to your taste.
  4. In a food processor mince chopped potato, celery and baby carrots.
  5. Add water and tomatoes. Stir very well getting all the drippings off the bottom of the pan.

  7. Add all the minced vegetables. Let this broth simmer for 2 hours. Stir frequently.
  8. After it cooks, you may have a large enough pot of beef broth that you can take out about 5 cups of seasoned broth and put away in your freezer. That is what I did.
  9. After the 2 hours, add the chopped parsnips. Let these cook for 1 more hour.
  10. Then add the chunked carrots, onion and celery.
  11. About 1 hour later, add chopped potatoes and sweet potato. Cook until fork tender. Stirring gently frequently and carefully. Lower heat and let cook slowly.

  13. After 4 hours your can turn the heat off and leave it covered. It will continue to cook and rest. The flavors will distribute about the stew nicely.
  14. Enjoy! This is true home cooking comfort food.

Cook bacon in large pot on medium 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pot using slotted spoon. Drain excess bacon fat carefully into a tin can, rather than pouring down sink...
