Beef Chuck Roast Stew (baby Food)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Trixyinaz

My 1 year old loves this stew. I made this for her at about 10 months old. Easy to puree and freeze. One stop meal. Not bad for adults either - even without any seasoning. Just make sure your baby has been introduced to all the ingredients before serving. Servings are approximate. I calculated 3 cubes per serving - your little one might eat more or less depending on age. Add pasta or rice if you want to include a whole grain to the meal.

My son (9 months) seemed to enjoy this. I substituted broccoli for the peas--he's allergic-- and used sweet potato instead of a white potato. I added some brown rice to give more texture and complete the meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim excess fat off roast and cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Fill medium sauce pan with water, add meat, cover pan and simmer over medium/low heat for 40 minutes.
  3. While the meat is cooking, peel the carrots and slice. Peel the potato and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Set aside.
  4. After the meat has been cooking for 40 minutes, add the carrots, onion, peas & potatoes. Cover and cook another 15 minutes or until vegetables are soft and meat is longer pink. If the water disipates before the vegetables are done, add more as needed.
  6. Separate the meat from vegetables. Using your food processor, puree the meat first to almost the desired consitency. Add the vegetables and puree until smooth or desired consistency.
  7. Scoop into ice cube tray and freeze. Once frozen, pop out and store in sealed plastic bag for up to 3 months.
  9. Cut up meat to bite size pieces and serve veggies as-is. Freeze in indivual containers for easy one serving sizes.
