Stew recipes are some of the easiest to make. And they're perfect as the days get shorter and colder. There's nothing better than coming home to a house filled with the aroma of a beef stew simmering in your crockpot. And stews can be made quickly too! Just use a really good boxed stock and it will taste like it's been simmering for hours. Stew is perfect for the beginning cook. Just throw everything into a pot and let it cook. Yum.
This stew is a combination of several different recipes I liked. It's so delicious. I think marjoram is the best herb to use with beef. Its lemony and grassy flavor really brings out the meatiness of this stew.
This stew is a wonderful combination of textures and flavors. Barley is so delicious: tender and nutty, it's good for you too. Combine that with chicken, corn, and lots of garlic in a rich and savory stew and you have a winner!
My homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix, together with rich beef and lots of peppers and onions, makes this stew special. It really does taste like a fajita in stew form! Serve it with guacamole and some shredded Pepper Jack cheese for a special finish.
If you really want to make something special from scratch, try the original version
of this recipe. But that takes hours! Believe me, when I streamlined this recipe I was very critical of the outcome. And I think the quick version is just as good as the original.
This fabulous stew also cooks in the crockpot. It has such wonderful flavor. I love the addition of pineapple in the recipe. It adds a special touch of sweetness that contrasts beautifully with the sour vinegar.
This easy, cheesy stew is perfect served with a hot pan of cornbread.
Top it with sour cream and some chopped chives for the perfect fall dinner.
This easy five ingredient recipe is full of the flavors of fall. I like to stir in more dried thyme just before serving. Remember that the long, slow cooking of the crockpot tends to mute the flavor of herbs.
A pressure cooker is the best way to make a fabulously tender and flavorful stew in a matter of minutes. One hour, from start to finish, and you'll be serving this delicious stew.
My Pasta Fazool is a stew! I mash some of the beans so they thicken the liquid and make this recipe so hearty and rich. Serve with lots of Toasted Parmesan Garlic Bread
and a simple green salad for the perfect meal.
This sweet and sour stew has the wonderful aroma of ginger. It's a sweet and sour stew that's made in the slow cooker.
