Beef Stew

Printable Recipe

~2 lbs stew meat (use either stew meat or cut up a chuck roast)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can consommé beef soup
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can water

Mix soups, onion soup mix and water in crockpot. Add stew meat (roll in flour and brown it first in a little bit of oil), chopped potatoes and chopped carrots. Cook on low 6-8 hours. About 1/2 hour before serving, add 1 can corn and 1 can peas or green beans. Serve with cornbread or wheat bread rolls.

Holly’s Note:
This is mom’s original recipe. This is another of those comforting meals. Stew always makes me feel good, no matter what else is going on. It’s as if eating it calms my soul and tells me that all is right with the world. This is also the same soup base for Meatballs and Gravy.

  1. Hi! Love your blog! I sent the link to my mother and she informed me that I will be making this beef stew for her this weekend. :-) About how much stew meat do you normally add? Would you say maybe 2 pounds or so?
