Ranch Stew Aka Cowboy Stew

Ranch Stew Aka Cowboy Stew created by 2Bleu

This is one of my family favorites that I have made for years. It is super easy to throw together and contains ingredients that I always have on hand. When I make this I have to double the recipe because it tastes even better the next day! Ranch Style beans are a western style pinto bean made with a flavorful sauce. They add a lot of the flavor to this recipe so try not to substitute them if possible.

    I made this dish and my family LOVED it! I did a couple tweaks and loved the way it turned out. I seasoned the meat while browning it then added it to the crockpot and used ranch style beans, rotel, and a can of fire roasted corn. I added 1/4 of a cube of consmate (a tomato chicken bullion) to the crockpot when everything was added. We ate it on top of Fritos which added salty crunchy goodness. Will definitely make again!

    I couldn’t find ranch style beans at my local grocery store. What should I substitute instead? I have pinto beans. Should I add more seasoning? Help?

    My recipe for Cowboy Stew is the same as yours except that mine calls for potatoes. The potatoes give the stew a gravy when they start to break down from being cooked. I don't think the recipe would be the same without the ranch beans and I add two cans when I need to strech the recipe. To give it an extra kick, I have used the ranch beans with jalapenos, but it is kinda hard to find them in the store. Thanks for posting!!

    Great stew!! Simple and easy... Made it last night and we had the left overs the next day. We thought it was even better the next day. The only changes I made was to add about 1/2 cup of water and about 1/2 cup of tomato sauce because it seemed a little dry, also added a can of white hominy. After browning the hamburger meat, I put everything in the crockpot for about 6-7 hours on low... It was perfect. Served with cornbread and a green salad.
