Beef Stew – Hearty and Delicious

Delicious Beef Stew

This delicious beef stew is a fall and winter favorite in our house. 

It makes the kitchen smell wonderful on chilly days when we are stuck inside. 

This recipe makes plenty for a large family and enough for leftovers the next day.  My children often go back for a second helping.




 

Flour the beef, then saute.

Cut beef into small cubes.  Often the pre-cut pieces from the butcher are huge and don’t cook as well in the stew.  If they are precut from the butcher, make the cubes smaller so that they are bite sized.    Coat the beef lightly in flour and sauté in oil.

I love extra veggies in my stew and often add more than the recipe calls for.  Because there are many potatoes to peel and veggies to chop, I usually enlist some help for this recipe.

Easy Beef Stew with Vegetables

I sometimes add extras including parsnips, sweet potato or even some beans.  If I am adding something “really healthy” that my children won’t like, I just add it to my bowl only.

This whole recipe can be ready to enjoy in just over two hours.  Most of the cooking in my house is done by me alone and the consuming by everyone else.   If my husband and children are starving, I can often inspire them to help out to make dinner ready to eat faster.  Now that my teens are always hungry, this trick works quite often.

This makes the work go faster and teaches my children some important food prep and cooking skills.

Delightful Beef Stew

Warm crusty bread is perfect for dipping in the sauce to get every last drop.  This stew is wonderful on its own and doesn’t need any extras.  All the same it is also delightful over some egg noodles.  If you have extra guests for dinner, using the egg noodles insures that there is enough for everyone with leftovers as well.

Instructions
  1. Cut beef into small cubes.  If they are precut from the butcher, make the cubes smaller so they are bite sized.  Coat the beef lightly in flour.
  2. In a large pot, sauté beef in oil, turning frequently until brown on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Using the same pot, sauté onions and mushrooms, when soft add the garlic. Drain any excess fat.
  4. Add in beef broth and tomato paste, stir well. Add the beef back into the pot. Add enough broth to cover the meat.  Simmer until beef is tender, about 75 to 90 minutes.
  5. Add in carrots, green beans, potatoes and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. To thicken the stew add the cornstarch mixture.  Whisk cornstarch with cold water and stir into stew pot.  Turn up the heat and boil for 2-3 minutes. If you like the stew thicker, you can add more cornstarch mixture.
  7. Enjoy on its own, over a bed of fluffy egg noodles or with some warm crusty bread for dipping!

  1. We tried your stew recipe this weekend and it was excellent! We served it over a bed of wide egg noodles and warm dinner rolls and the kids loved it! Thinking about substituting the beef with turkey post Thanksgiving! 👍🏼
