Easy Beef Stew Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Hurry-Up Beef-Vegetable Stew

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

Nothing beats real homemade beef stew. But this recipe is a good alternative for when you don't have enough time.

I love homemade beef stew from scratch, but if you want a really quick recipe for semi homemade: McCormick has a stew packet just add water and whatever other ingredients you want in it. It requires the meat uncooked to sit for 20 minutes in the mixture. if you buy baby carrots for the stew and already chopped celery and the small red potatoes, you can throw them into a pot to boil/steam for a bit during the 20 minutes. when the 20 minutes is up add all your veggies that are already half cooked along with a small package of frozen peas and corn, bring to a boil and simmer about 35-45 minutes. My family loves this when I make it and it's great for a week night when you're in the mood for stew but don't have the time.
