Yummy Beef Stew Recipes

It's been too long since I've blogged and WAY too long since I have posted recipes. Here are a couple beef stew favorites. Stew meat can be very versatile and very tender when cooked slowly. I love to make huge batches of stew and have plenty to freeze and eat as leftovers. Less cooking for mom means more time with family or more time to farm:)

What can I say on a rainy cool August day I was inspired to write about beef stew. As a matter of fact I have the first recipe simmering right now!

Beef Stew and Veggies on the Stove Top (2 hrs 20 min)
  • 2 pounds cubed beef stew meat
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 cubes beef bouillon, crumbled
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 4 stalks celery, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cold water


  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, cook beef in oil over medium heat until brown. Dissolve bouillon in water and pour into pot. Stir in rosemary, parsley and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour.
