cubed beef stew meat
ground black pepper
fresh corn kernels
fresh green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
I tried this with company.It was great. Makes a lot. I’ve made bf. stw. all my life but it was always bland. Spic it up and it's still spicy bland stew. The secret is the rosemary. Unlikely, but you don’t taste it too much and it is a perfect compliment to the stew flavors. Glad there's no celery. Never liked it. Used canned corn and green beans. Added a big onion cut up in chunks. Beef stew without onions is unthinkable! Left out the rice. Made some on the side so people could spoon their stew on top of it. Made this all in the microwave. Not a big timesaver. Browned the meat and pre-cooked the carrots, potatoes and onions before “stewing” it. Cook on high for about 20 mins. Then simmer, covered, on a medium setting for about 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally, to get the meat tender. Gravy was thinner than I like. Stirred in about 3 Tbsp. of cornstarch dissolved in hot water to thicken. Like it dark brown so I added a tsp. more of the browning sauce. Also added about 2 tsp. of Accent (msg) and 1/3 cup of dry sherry. Some folks thought they needed to salt it more. The colorful vegetables make it appetizing looking for ordinary stew. I’ll make my beef stew like this again and again.
This stew had a great texture but not much flavor. The meat was incredibly tender but I had to add a lot of seasonings to give it any flavor at all. OK start for a recipe but it needs work.
This is a great stew recipe! I did make some changes. I put seasoning salt and garlic powder in the flour before I covered the beef. Instead of 6 cups of water I used 3 cups beef broth and 3 cups water. I didn’t have any fresh vegetables so I used 2 cans of mixed vegetables and 1 can of whole carnal corn. I really like rice so I used 1 whole cup. Every thing else I did just as the recipe said. Tasted Amazing!! Thanks for sharing!!
It took a long time to cook but it was wearth it.
Very good! I added a can of no salt diced tomatoes, cut back some water and added Thyme.
This was pretty good, although not great. My 6 yr old son loved it and asked for seconds. I felt it was a little too thick, but I will tweek it and make it again. Thank you
This was ok, but nothing fantastic either. Will keep searching for a good beef stew recipe.
A classic favorite of mine and my husband's; he thought it was great, too!!
