Herbed Beef Stew

June 29, 2012Teresa

2013 – Gluten Free Living

I love this Herbed Beef Stew! Once I find a pretty good recipe I usually stick with it. I’ve made my mom’s beef stew recipe for years. But I thought I’d try this one after looking at the ingredients and picture. I am so glad I did. It is wonderful! So tasty and hearty. Serve with cornbread and it’s all you need to make for dinner.

This appetizing and filling stew is LOADED with vegetables. It has red potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, peas, corn, green beans, bell peppers, and mushrooms. It has a wonderful savory flavor and is quite healthy, low calorie and gluten free. We like it because it’s so hearty and satisfying. Plus it’s a meal in one.

This was one of the first Taste of Home recipes I ever tried. I found it back in the early to mid-90s when they began publishing all their awesome cookbooks. I can’t say enough about their recipes and their cookbooks. Out of hundreds of recipes I’ve tried, only one has been a complete failure even after three tries. I tried that one over and over because I love the ingredients. But the apricot filling kept oozing out of the crescents so it made a big mess. Probably need to try it again sometime. It was tasty, just messy.

If you are a new cook, I highly recommend Taste of Home cookbooks. Their recipes are family friendly. You don’t get stuck buying a lot of yukky, gourmet stuff found like you do in most other cookbooks. Some of those recipe outcomes are just awful. I hate having to throw food out that my family won’t eat! With Taste of Home, you are sure to get a good product every time.

When you are more experienced in cooking, then feel free to be creative with the recipes and improvise as needed. But probably in the beginning it’s better to follow the recipe as much as possible. That way you don’t find yourself disappointed with the end result. And NO, I’m not a paid marketer for Taste of Home! I just love their products.

If you want a wonderful Herbed Beef Stew recipe, this one is nice enough even for company. The recipe calls for two teaspoons each of salt and pepper. While that may seem like too much. It really isn’t. But you can always start with one and a half teaspoons of pepper and see if you find that sufficient. I use either stew beef or steaks to make it. No matter how I make it, this stew is always well received by whoever tries it.

I initially posted this recipe in June 2012, only two weeks after beginning my blog. I remade it in November 2014 but my pictures were still not the greatest. I recently remade this recipe (April 2019) for our Friday night care group. Seriously, they ooohed and aaaahhhhed over this stew. Not one person had less than two bowls! I served it with Boston Market Cornbread and Orange Poppyseed Cake. Everyone just loved it.
