Yield: a LOT more than the recipe says. The recipe says it will make 7 quarts. Well, it did make 7 quarts PLUS enough for a family of 6 to eat for dinner and enough leftovers to feed 2 adults. So, I'm guessing maybe 10-11 quarts.
4-5 pounds beef stew meat
8 C sliced carrots
3 C chopped celery
3 C chopped onion
12 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 Tbsp salt
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. pepper
( I also added some Montreal Streak seasoning)
Cut meat into 1 1/2 inch cubes (or buy it that way) and brown in a small amount of oil or butter. Then I started layering everything in the jars. Once they are crammed almost full, fill with boiling water, leaving 1-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust caps. Process at 10 pounds pressure for 90 minutes. Yum!
