Beef Stew

Pretty much the only thing I like about cold weather is that I make soup a lot more often.  I really, really don’t like being cold.  But I do LOVE eating soup.:)  I always make this soup after I make The Best Pot Roast by the Pioneer Woman.  Use the leftover meat, my gravy (on the post I linked to), and Homemade Chicken Stock to make the most delicious beef stew.  I hope you will give all these recipes a try.  And if you don’t have time to make homemade stock, well, of course, just use what you have.:)


6 large russet potatoes, peel and chopped

2 large carrots, peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 onion, minced

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dried rosemary leaves, I also kind-of crush these in my fingers before putting them in

1/4-1/2 tsp dried ground thyme

1/4 tsp black pepper

4 C homemade stock

2 C roast beef, left over-cooked and cubed

1 C homemade beef gravy


Chop potatoes, carrots, and onions.  Place in a large pot.


Then add spices and stock.  Stir.  Bring to a boil.  Continue boiling for about 20 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender.


Then add the meat and gravy and continue cooking until warmed through- about 10 minutes.



Simple, quick and easy way to use leftovers.  I like to serve this with some of my Fresh Bread, some saltine crackers, or rolls along with a nice salad.  I’ll admit that I’m usually the only one who eats the salad, but hey, it’s worth a try.:)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Stay warm!

Life is Good.  Share the Good.
