Cook time: 1 hour 45 min
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: Family of Six, with leftovers


  • 2 Pounds Beef Stew Meet, Cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 Tablesppons Cooking Oil
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 1/4 Cups Onion, Chopped
  • 16 Ounces Salsa, Jar of your choice
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley Flakes
  • 2 Teaspoons Beef Bouillon Granules
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 3 Medium Carrots, Cut into 1" pieces
  • 14 1/2 Ounce Can Diced Tomatos, Un-Drained
  • 1 1/2 Cups Frozen Cut Green Beans
  • 1 1/2 Cups Frozen Corn
  • 4 Ounce Can Chopped Green Chilies

*You can decide an the spiciness of this stew by selecting you choice of salsa. I usually use the medium.


  1. In a pan brown beef cubes in the cooking oil over medium heat. Transfer beef cubes into a larger pot (about 4-quart size) and add the next eight ingredients. (water, onion, salsa, garlic, parsley, beef bouillon, cumin, salt) Bring these ingredients to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Add the carrots, return to a boil. Reduce heat again and cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, green beans, corn and chilies, return to a boil. Again reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until beef and vegetables are tender.

We have a family of six, 2 adults and 4 small children. It makes enough for dinner and leaves us usually with ample left-overs. (Sorry I do not have the exact serving size)
