  1. Heat the shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the beef stew meat. Cook and stir until the beef is evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Transfer beef to a large pot, and add beef stock, onion, garlic, bay leaves, beef bouillon, salt, and pepper. Cook on medium heat until beef begins to tender, about 1 hour.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the carrots; cook and stir until the carrots begins to tender. Stir in the potatoes and celery. Continue to cook and stir until all the vegetables are tender. Transfer the vegetables to the large pot. Simmer until the beef is very tender, about 1 hour more.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Delicious. I did not use the vegetable shortening or the butter. It came out perfect and the whole pan of soup was eaten in one night since my family liked ti so much.

My boyfriend and I decided to make this for dinner tonight. This is an excellent base recipe for stew. We wanted to experiment with the cooking technique which resulted in slightly over-cooked b...

The only alteration for me was to brown my meat in Olive Oil. This is a great, fairly quick Beef Stew. Even my picky eaters loved it. Serve it with warm French Bread and your meal is complete.

It was good! I read the reviews, and I also dredged the meat in flour, salt and pepper before brownin, and I did not drain it. I used whole carrots instead of baby carrots.


Really pleased. Will definitely make it again often. Thank you so much.

I made this today & it was DELICIOUS...i had been craving beef stew & looked up recipes & this one caught my eye!...glad i chose it...OMG DELICIOUS!

I followed the recipe and everyone loved it, even my five-year-old!

I was trying to use up some leftover steak from the cookout this past weekend with a new recipe. So, this was my only alteration. Tasted just like my normal beef stew. Very good! My daughter ha...
