I seasoned the cubes with salt and pepper, rolled them in flour and browned in a bit of oil.
I brown a few cubes at a time.
I received a nice gift of Maggi cubes from cooking friend Marc in Georgia (thanks again Marc!!)
I added some beef broth to the pot, a garlic/onion maggi cube and a bay leaf....
I also seasoned the pot with salt, pepper, thyme and added some cubed potatoes.
After simmering all day, I added some corn during the last 30 minutes of the cook....
I could have added carrots for color but I really do not care for cooked carrots, so I left them out. lol It was tasty and warmed me up anyway. :)
