Son of a Gun Beef Stew

Source: Festival of the West, Scottsdale, Arizona

This stew was a mainstay for many chuck wagon cooks of the early cattle drives. It was often used at social gatherings when visitors would bring a variety of ingredients. This recipe has been modernized for convenience but should be cooked in a well-seasoned cast iron kettle. It can be cooked over an open campfire, charcoal, or on a modern stove.

Cooking oil as necessary
1 (2 pound) London broil beef, chopped into small squares
6 potatoes, peeled and chopped into small squares
