Beef Stew

Such a perfect meal for a freezing day like today :-)! I just kind of threw this together with things I had on hand and thought it turned out well.

Ingredients: (guess-timates)
1/2 lb. ground beef
1 c. onion, thinly sliced (a heaping cup)
4 c. beef broth
1 envelope onion mushroom soup mix
1 c. water
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3-4 c. potatoes, diced (I used 8 small-ish red potatoes)
4 T. cornstarch/flour mixed with 4 T. water to make paste

Directions:
-Brown meat and onions.
-In large pot combine broth, soup mix, water and beef/onions. Simmer while chopping other vegetables.
-Add carrots, celery and potatoes and bring to boil. Turn down heat and let it simmer for an hour or so.
-Add flour/cornstarch mixture to thicken it up a little when veggies are cooked.
