Beef stew is super filling, savory and sooo easy to make! Here’s my recipe/ guide on how to make a delicious stew- one that makes it seem like you slaved away in the kitchen- but really just chopped a bunch of stuff up, sprinkled in some seasonings, threw it in a pot and let the magic work itself. My methods are very go-with-the-flow, but I promise you can’t mess this one-pot stew up. And feel free to experiment different veggies- you really can’t go wrong!  Lastly, I’m half Filipino, so naturally I eat this with rice. But it goes great with a fresh baguette or pearl couscous! Ingredients:

  • 1.5-2 lbs of chunks of chuck beef (you want a little fat in the cut)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • garlic
  • leeks
  • 1 sweet potato
  • carrots
  • peas
  • celery
  • seasonings (rosemary or thyme for example)
  • beef stock
  • worcestershire sauce
  • pepper & salt
  • flour

Directions: Heat your pot with olive oil and sear your chunks of beef until browned. Add a little over a pint of beef stock, garlic (4-5 cloves,) chopped leaks, seasonings, salt and lots of pepper to the pot. After 25 minutes, add 1 cup of water, 3-4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce, all of your chopped veggies, the tomato paste and a little grab of flour and stir. Continue to stir every so often and keep at a medium heat (a nice simmer) for about an 1-1.5 hours. If you accidentally over season, add more beef stock or some water. If you want your veggies a bit firmer, add them to the pot further into cooking. The stew will thicken a bit when settled. Enjoy your hot bowl of stew! Stew2
