Mara's Beef and Rutabaga Stew

*2 lbs beef chuck, cubed
*2 rutabagas, peeled and cubed
*4 parsnips, peeled and cut into one-inch disks
*1 small yellow onion, chopped

Create a rub for meat by combining salt, pepper, mustard powder, thyme and sage (I prefer to use fresh herbs)

Sprinkle mixture on cubed meat and brown in a very hot pan-just a minute on each side.

Toss meat in crock-pot with parsnips and rutabagas.

In the pan the meat was browned in, add a splash of oil and sauté onions until brown (about 5 min.)

Add sautéed onions, to crock-pot and toss in a bay leaf or two.

Cover mixture with beef stock or water.

Cook on low for 8 - 10 hours.

I couldn't find my beef stew recipe anywhere. I had just given up and googled new recipes--imagine my excitement when I found my own!
