Quick and Easy Beef Stew

"We don't eat red meat very often in our house, but every once in a while someone gets a craving for a hearty beef stew and some crusty Sourdough bread. This is my standby recipe."

    Can I use a vegetable broth instead of the canned beef broth I have not found halal (aka kosher)broth yet and would carrot greens make a good garnish as well. Thank you

    I was short on time and needed a quick and easy dinner. This was delicious. I did add a package of onion soup mix, basil and garlic for some added flavor. Will make again!

    Made this last night for my husband who was feeling a little sick. He loved it and so did my 4 year old son. I used beef stew meat instead of sirlion so i simmered it for 2 hours to make sure the meat was tender. I also added a bay leaf. The stew had a nice, mellow comforting flavor. We will definitely make this again this winter. Thanks!

    This recipe is delicious! I added a 32oz box of organic beef broth in place of the three cans of broth. And a splash of red wine. My husband loves it. Made with a rustic Irish Soda bread on the side. Great Quarantine comfort food dish!

    Made this for the first time and it was great. While cooking it I did cut down to half on the pepper since my family doesn't prefer the heat as much. It turned out absolutely perfect and the whole family enjoyed it~

    I added a couple spices to the flour; cumin, paprika, chili powder, and some cajun seasoning. Also added some Onion soup mix and garlic after reading the comments here then at the end I put a couple biscuits on top and sided with can cresent rolls... Sooo good, love it

    I do not cook anything that does not come out of a box... but I managed to make this, even needing to sub out some things. With a family member being in the hospital I have suddenly needed to cook for the family. I didn't have any beef, but lucky for me I live at a deer processing. So I used venison instead of beef. No stock either so I used water and added onion soup mix. HOME RUN!!!

    Absolutely awesome...added celery didnt have canned broth so i used 3 boullion cubes and water. My wife was out when i made it...she was floored at how good it was. She asked what was in it..told her it was a secret. Thanks for sharing.
