- 2 onions, quartered
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
What to Do
- Combine oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger in a large resealable plastic storage bag; seal and shake to combine ingredients. Add beef, seal bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Place beef and marinade in a Dutch oven. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1 hour. Add carrots, celery, and onions. Cover and simmer about 1-3/4 hours more, or until meat and vegetables are tender. Remove meat and vegetables to a platter; cover to keep warm.
- Combine cold water and cornstarch; add to pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened. Slice the meat across the grain. Serve gravy over meat and vegetables.
It's easy to switch this up and make a sweet-and-sour version by simply adding a drained, 16-ounce can of pineapple chunks with the carrots.
