Looking to try a fabulous new recipe for stew meat. Not Mexican flavors, but anything else goes. Any favorites?

I sort of wing it with any stew recipe. Given beef stew meat (typically neck cuts) that are already cubed, I coat these in flour and sauté in oil until somewhat browned. Add beef stock (but not afraid of veggie stock, either) and spears of celery, mini onions or whole yellow onion, fresh garlic, peeled carrot spears, chopped green beans, a bit of a roux to tighten it together, frozen peas, BBQ sauce for flavour, S+P as a matter of course, and, to a fury of DW, cubed rutabaga and beef kidney, and stew it long...more of a fall and winter thing than spring or summer...

This was my favorite growing up. I was amazed when I was older and asked my mom for the recipe how EASY it is! A small amount of prep. time, a day in the slow cooker, and you'll be amazed! It sounds too simple to be good... TRUST me! This gets RAVE reviews when we make it! The amount of vegetables is only an estimate. Use as many or as few as you choose. When it's done, you will have a yummy gravy, and will have to carefully dig for the steak pieces.

Naturally my favorite things to do with beef stew meat are chili (Texas) or carne guisada. Since you said no Mexican, I'm guessing Texican is out too, lol. My next favorite is to use my Swiss steak recipe either in the slow cooker or the pressure cooker (more my style).

I add a little tomato juice (just canned) to stews and my roasts. It gives the broth a really great rich flavor.

Beef stew meat gets a savory coating of seasoned flour before being browned, then cooked for hours over low heat with mushrooms and beefy gravy. Serve over mashed potatoes or steamed rice.

This gorgeous casserole with beef and onions is best made the day before. Store the leftovers in the fridge covered, it also freezes well.

Smoked paprika gives this beef stew a rich, smoky taste. It cooks long and slow and can be made a day ahead and reheated. Instead of noodles, you can serve over rice or potatoes.
