Add garlic to oil in pan...wait a min. add meat and sprinkle with onion soup mix; saute till lightly browned. Add more butter if needed.
Stir in 1 1/2 c of the beef bouillon, potatoes,salt, and black pepper. Cover, turn heat down to simmer, and cook for 15 minutes. Add carrots and remainder of bullion. It will thicken as it cooks. Add more water if it gets too thick.

Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool.

I made these layouts for a paper bag album I am making. I used Merry Memories kit and Christmas Cheer kit by Bren Boone at scrapbook graphics.

I used my templates available at Scrapdish
