My dear friend Liz passed this recipe on to me years ago... it is flexible as far as veggies you want to add. Pretty basic stuff. But the V-8 adds a nice kick and this remains a favorite recipe.
- Brown meat in small amount of oil.
- Add canned tomatoes and let cook for about 10 minutes.
- Add vegetables and enough V-8 juice to cover.
- Let simmer until cooked through.
- You can season as desired with salt/pepper.
I was surprised to see a V-8 beef stew, but it sounded so good! I browned the meat, and then put the diced tomatoes in (after the meat was drained), along with the diced onion. In this mixture, I added: thyme, currie, salt, pepper, ground peppercorn, and celery flakes. After about 10 min. of cooking, I added the V-8, about 1 cup of beef broth, frozen veggies and a small can of carrots. I am boiling the potatoes separately (not too soft though) just to speed up the cooking process. It smells SO good! After tasting the "roux" it is a 5-star! I can't hardly wait to grab the saltines and Enjoy. Thank you for posting this delicious recipe.
This stew beef recipe is great. It different from the way I have been doing it. This is much better, the V-8 juice gives it a another dimension. Will make again. I omitted the carrots,personal preference.
