When you’re in the mood for a hearty, easy and delicious meal, check out the Beef Stew recipe (links below).
This is a throw it in the pot, set it and forget it type recipe that I love.
Sure, some recipes call for flouring and searing the meat first, and of course, that’s not wrong.
However, it gives you a different type of stew. The flouring and searing step allows the meat to stay together in cohesive pieces. I like my stew meat flaked and mixed into the stew, without big chunks of beef. Hence, the skipping of this step.
Plus, an extra perk is the simplicity of the whole thing. Technically it’s a few steps. Put the stuff in the pot and cook. After it’s cooked add the slurry of cornstarch and water.
Also, I love tomato-y stew. Which is why I’ve included the diced tomatoes in this recipe. I had tried tomato paste, and other combos, but this is what’s worked best for me.
I hope you enjoy this fast and tasty meal.
