Stifled Beef Over Mashed Potatoes

What a great recipe, not only is it fun to make, but it smells delicious. I felt like a little kid shaking the beef in a paper bag filled with flour and spices. It was a lot of fun! After the beef browned in a pan, I make a roux, then deglazed with water and bring it to a boil. The next step was to pour this over your meat and set it in the oven for a couple hours.

Marjorie says that it's a hearty, satisfying meal that can be served with mashed or baked potatoes. I chose mashed potatoes, and it does complement the dish nicely. The dish, though called Stifled Beef by Marjorie, is also known by some as Smothered Beef. It seems as though it was probably a rather popular dish back in the day. As an added tip Marjorie says..."Any left over may be used in making a beef pie."
