Awesome Beef Stew

January 29, 2019

I know, I never post anymore. Are blogs still a thing? I still have this, so may be I will take it up again. This is for the Bestie though. I made an awesome upgraded version of my previous beef stew this weekend and she wanted the recipe. So here it is!



  • 1.5 lbs or so stew beef
  • 2 to 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2-3 LARGE potatoes, peeled and cut into nice chunks (not quarters)
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 40 ounces of beef broth (I go with reduced sodium on all can goods)
  • Olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/3 cup of flour
  • lots of granulated garlic
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic (this is optional)
  • Costco’s organic no-salt seasoning (optional)

I should point out, that I really kind of just eyeball everything at this point. So these are good estimates of amounts. I really don’t think you can mess this one up though. Just don’t burn the damn onions and you are good.


  1. Put beef in a large zip lock bag. Add in granulated garlic (at least a tablespoon), a good bit of pepper and little bit of salt. Cover the beef with those seasoning. Then add the flour and get all the beef coated in the seasonings. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot heat some olive oil (don’t skimp on the oil, you don’t want anything to burn or get stuck) and saute the diced onion over medium. I also toss in some minced garlic. Let it all get lightly browned.
  3. Add the beef to the onion/garlic mixture and get the beef nicely browned. Takes several minutes
  4. Add the beef broth to the pot and stir everything.
  5. Cover and cook for about 45 minutes.
  6. Add the potatoes, carrots, peas, and corn. I also added in a sprinkle of pepper, granulated garlic, and that no-salt blend. Cover and cook on low or medium (or somewhere in between) for another 45 minutes.
  7. I serve it all over egg noddles*

I am a huge fan of this! It makes enough for several meals and seriously gets better over time!


*I know, pasta and potatoes in one dish… it is carb overload, but is how I have always eaten beef stew for my entire life! And it is GREAT!
