Beef stew is not your average quick cooking meal. Most recipes take a couple hours, or even an entire day to fully develop a robust stew flavor. However, I've found a recipe for a super simple beef stew that comes together in under an hour. Red wine, thyme, mushroom and tomato soups, give this stew a slow cooked feeling. All you have to do is throw everything into a pot and wait for it to boil, making it the perfect end of the week meal. To get the recipe please
2 cups water
1 10.75-oz. can condensed golden-mushroom soup
1 10.75-oz. can condensed tomato soup
1/2 cup dry red wine or beef broth
2 cups chopped cooked roast beef
1 16-oz. package frozen sugar-snap stir-fry vegetables or one 16-oz. package frozen cut broccoli
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
- In a 4-qt. Dutch oven combine water, mushroom soup, tomato soup, and wine. Stir in beef, frozen vegetables, and thyme.
- Cook over medium heat until bubbly, stirring frequently. Continue cooking, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender, stirring occasionally.
