Beefalicious Stew!

2 LBS. Black Angus Beef Tips
2 TBS. Olive Oil
2 TBS. Worcestershire Sauce
3 Large Cooking Onions
1 LB. Baby Carrots
1 Large Can Diced Tomatoes
8 Large All Purpose Poatoes
1 TSP. Garlic Powder  
1 TSP. Onion Powder
2 TBS. Parsley Flakes
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/4 Cup Cornstarch
Brown beef tips in large deep pan in the olive oil along with Worcestershire sauce. Get them good & brown but do not let them get over done or dry. Just get the outside of the tips brown , medium high heat works best. Once nicely brown add onion to the pot & cook until onion is slightly browned. Now add all of the tomatoes + the juice & enough water to fill pot 3/4 full about 8 cups. Dump in baby carrots & the remaining seasoning. I wait to add salt & pepper until stew is done & I can taste to judge what I want to add. While this starts to simmer in the broth peel & dice potatoes in 1 inch dice. Dump in potatoes & let stew simmer covered stirring every so often to prevent sticking. Let simmer at least one hour but even longer is better. When potatoes & carrots are soft mix cornstarch with 1 cup of water & stir in to bubbling stew to thicken. Serve with a nice hot crusty bread.  This will serve 6 large portions. Recipe could be cut in half but this taste even better the second or third day so I always make a big pot !
