This is a simple beef stew recipe that was created when I realized that I have bad stomach problems. I am in the process of creating recipes that anyone can eat that still taste good to everyone else too. This is the first of many...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop all veggies except celery to uniform size, about one inch or so.
  2. Add all of the first ingredients to jars leaving 1 inch of headroom.
  3. Add salt, pepper and garlic sliver to each pint jar then add the remaining corn, peas and green beans, the last is the boiling beef broth.
  4. I didn't leave the 1 inch of head space to each jar and they came out fine. Don't worry about the small amount of liquid. When the veggies cook they will produce plenty.
  5. Process for 60 min at 10 psi.

I did double the amount of liquid and I added 1 tablespoon of A-1 sauce to eat jar for added zip. We loved the recipe. My man is a truck driver and took all the jars with him. Thanks for the recipe.

an added note; make sure beef has no additives and veggies are not from Calif. they use oxigro in the soil and it has msg in it. otherwise this is great....Mote
