Recipe: Gravy Stew

Being as I’m pretty much stuck at home in my wonderful cast, I’ve decided to try and go through all the staples we’ve acquired in our freezer and pantry that may or may not be in danger of expiring or acquiring capacious amounts of freezer burn. Since cooking the crap out of something is always the best way to ensure tenderness, I whipped out the crock-pot. Ingredients: * 2 lbs stew beef, cubed * 4 cups water * 1/2 cup white vinegar * 1 cup rice * 2 tbsp butter * 2/3 cup flour * 1 tsp sea salt, ground * 1/2 tsp bay leaves, chopped * 1/4 tsp black pepper, ground * 1/4 tsp sage, dry * 1/4 tsp rosemary, dry
