Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef stew meat
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Directions

  • Put stew meat, flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a large zip-top bag; seal bag. Shake bag to coat meat with flour and seasonings.
