Cook Time

Save yourself some work, unlike this photo, and brown the steak in the stock pot, rather than using another pan to brown it. Fewer dishes = more time for fun.

Ingredients

  • 3 Red or New Potatoes, quartered
  • 3 Carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Corn, (if frozen, pop in the microwave for a couple minutes)
  • 2 14.5 oz Cans Beef or Vegetable Broth, (If you have beef stock, that's even better)
  • 1 Medium-sized steak, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Dash Salt and Pepper
  • Dash Worcestershire Sauce, (Optional)
  • Any other Vegetables from your fridge drawer
  1. Bring to boil a medium pot of water. Meanwhile, cut steak into bite sized pieces. In a stock pot, warm extra virgin olive oil. Add steak, salt and pepper, and garlic. Cook until the steak is browned.
  2. Wash potatoes and cut into quarters. Once water is boiling, add potatoes and carrots. Cook until a fork can easily pick one up but it isn't mushy, about five minutes.
  3. Drain water and add vegetables to stock pot. Add beef or vegetable broth and any other veggies. Splash in some Worcestershire sauce to add depth of flavor.
  4. Simmer until ready to serve. Tastes great served with warm bread.

See the Yumminess!

      This looks pretty good. I no longer dare chop food up with a knife, though. Unless my husband is there to help, it's a matter of either taking a long time with my arthritic hands or risking cutting myself into the stew!

      Voted Up and Useful and Yummy.

      It turned out really tasty. One easy option is to use frozen veggies so that the chopping work is already done for you (not worth it to have a YOU flavored stew). You could even use a bag of assorted veggies for greater ease. I always underestimate the cook time so they stay crisp and don't turn mushy in my dish. Thank you for checking out this hub.
