Vegetable Beef Stew

The weather is getting cooler outside and that means it is time for soups and stews!  Nothing warms you up like a hearty soup when it is cold outside!

I got this recipe from Tom's mom and I love making it simply because it is easy.  There is nothing better than a delicious meal that doesn't take all day to make!  I made this Monday on my day off and actually doubled it so that we could have plenty of leftovers to take to work for lunch this week.

Vegetable Beef Stew


1 pound stew beef, cubed
3 tablespoons flour
1 medium onion, diced
1 can (14 ounce) beef broth
2 cans (14. 5 ounce each) stewed tomatoes
2 cans (14.5 ounce each) potatoes, drained and cubed
1 can (14.5 ounce) green beans, drained
1 can (14.5 ounce) carrots, drained


Combine meat and flour in plastic bag; toss to coat.  Brown meat in 2 tablespoons oil in frying pan.  Drain and transfer to 6 quart pot.  Add onion; cook until tender.  Season with salt and pepper, if desired.  Add tomatoes and broth.  Bring to boil; reduce heat.  Cover and simmer 45 minutes or until beef is tender.  Add vegetables; cook, uncovered, 5 minutes.  Serves 4.

**I added some red wine to the mix while it cooks for 45 minutes.  I just added another depth of flavor to the stew!**

This is such a simple meal to cook, but is so delicious!  We serve ours with cornbread muffins.

I got these adorable cupcake liners from TJ Maxx recently...they are just too cute!!  They had so many different designs for not a lot of money.  I just love that you never know what you are going to find at TJ Maxx...especially when this trip was to find bathroom accessories!

Have a great Tuesday, y'all!
