Irish Italian Beef Stew

Irish Italian Stew ( Ireland)

3 lbs. beef stew cubes- bought a chuck roast and cubed it
3 c. water
3 1/2 c. Tomato puree- (1 can cheap chunky spaghetti sauce)
1 1/2 tbsp. salt
3/4 tsp. pepper
1 bay leaf
3 lg. raw potatoes
10 peeled carrots
1 c. grated Romano cheese
1/4 c. cracker meal
1 egg
1 lb. can drained onions- ( 1 bag of frozen pearl onions)
1/4 c. water
2 tbsp. flour
Combine meat, water, puree, salt, pepper and bay leaf in large saucepan. Cover; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer about 2 hours. Cut potatoes into large cubes. Cut carrots in 2 inch pieces. Add potatoes and carrots to stew. Cover; cook about 30 minutes. Combine cheese, cracker meal and eggs. Shape into 12 balls. Add cheese balls and onions to stew. Blend until thickened. Simmer 10 minutes more. Remove bay leaf. Serves 12

I made this for dinner last night- Good and Easy- I skipped the cracker ball part - maybe next time.

I found this recipe in an old spiral bound  Foods with a Foreign Flavor book- Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers.
