Hearty Beef Stew

I know beef stew may sound kind of weird for the middle of summer. However, this was really awesome! It doesn't seem as though there is a whole lot of spices to add flavor to it, but it really was flavorful! And hearty as the title suggests! It would be great served with dinner rolls or mashed potatoes!

Hearty Beef Stew-adapted from The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook by Erin Chase
Total Time 35 minutes
Serves 5

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds stewing beef
  • 3 cups beef broth (you can also substitute water)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 4 small golden potatoes, diced (peeled if you desire)
  • 1 cup frozen green beans
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and add the beef. Sear and brown each side of the stewing beef. Add beef broth and bring to a boil; set heat to medium low.

Add the carrots, potatoes, diced tomatoes, green beans, garlic and salt and pepper. Cook for 20-30 minutes, on low heat until beef and vegetables are tender.
