       Title: BEEF STEW, PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN'S FAVORITE
  Categories: Meats, Beef, Stews
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       4 ts Oil
       2 ea Large onions, sliced
   1 1/2 ts Salt
       4 lb Lean beef stew meat
       1 c  Burgundy wine
       1 pk Frozen artichoke hearts
       2 pk (8 oz) refrigerated biscuits
       1 cl Garlic, split
     1/3 c  Flour
     1/2 ts Dill weed
       1 cn Beef consomme
       1 cn Mushrooms (drained)
            Butter
            Grated Parmesan cheese
  
   Heat oil.  Saute garlic and onions.  Remove. Mix flour, salt, pepper.
   Dredge
   meat and brown well. Return onion to pot. Add dill weed, wine, and
   consomme.
   Cover tightly and simmer about 2 hours or until meat is tender. Cook
   artichokes 1 minute less than package directions.  Add to meat. Add
   mushrooms.  Mix gently. Taste for seasoning. Pour into 2 1/2 quart
   casserole.
   Crown with biscuits (brush with butter and parmesan cheese). Bake 15 to 20
   minutes at 400 degrees.
   Note: I usually cook the stew in the pot, add canned artichokes (not
   marinated) with the mushrooms, simmer until the mushrooms are done, and
   serve
   with french bread. Eliminates the frozen artichodes, canned biscuits, and
   baking.
